I went in to talk with the radiation doc and to get prepped for the upcoming radiation. The prep was just a scan (another one!) and then marking the spots he'll use.... permanently marking them. I now have 3 tiny spots tattooed onto my body, lol!
I start the radiation on Tuesday! I thought they'd wait till after Thanksgiving, but they said they'll work around it. I'll go in 4 days next week, then Sunday - Wednesday, then the Monday and Tuesday after T'giving and I'll be done.
He's not saying it'll cure me - I guess a permanent cure is too much to hope for, but he did say it'll put the cancer into remission, which could last years and, with cancer, is about the best anyone can hope for.
Pouty, kicky whine coming. Stop now if you don't want to hear it. ......
I hate this. All this. I hate all the scans, and going to the doctor all the time, and feeling as if everyone in Wisconsin has seen my fat, flabby old body. And I hate admitting I have cancer. It was supposed to be taken out with the thyroid a year ago! Now I feel like I'll never be rid of it!
Okay, I'm done. On with the treatment and getting rid of this as best they can, for as long as they can!
