I finished the 18th treatment and have 2o more to go before it is over. The five treatments this week were very routine, they were on time and ever ready for me before my tine so I got in early, received the treatment and then out and back to the office in record time.
SEs I am starting to fell tired and hope to get some extra naps in tomorrow and Sundy, Starting to see lower intestine softness and early sign of diareha. The three tattoes that I recieved on the first planning session where they are putting the bb stickers on each day for the CT scanner are starting to show signs of redness and irriatation. They told me to be better at using moisturizer daily to help that out. They will start to use different stickers with easier adheasive so it isnt so harsh.
I'm planning on geeting a great night of sleep and a couple hour nap during the day and repeat on Suday to prepare for next weeks treatments which will get me to 23 completed sessions with only 15 left.
I hope this helps for others looking into IGRT and IMRT.
Happy Easter everyone.
