This round of radiation is rough. Luckily so far today I’ve been ok (ok meaning I haven’t gotten sick today), but the past couple of days, even within hours of my first radiation treatment, I was getting sick. So we added ANOTHER anti nausea medicine. Up to 5 now (and that’s JUST for nausea)! The new med seems to help a lot more so I’m thankful for that! I only have 2 radiation treatments left AND I don’t have radiation over the weekend so that’s also something to be thankful for.
My surgery is scheduled for a Monday morning after my radiation appointment. Yes. Radiation and surgery within a few hours of each other. Ugh. Hopefully the recovery is short and painless. The pain through all of this has been hard. It’s all nerve pain so finding a position to be comfortable is not easy. I hate to sound like I’m complaining but this is real and I need to get it out. Really though, I’m over the pain. My radiation mask this time around covers my shoulders and part of my neck. It’s so tight, definitely worse than the mask I had in Oklahoma. Although it’s pretty funny, at least the nose. I look like a witch!
This is very random but I’ve had several people share stories and ask for my surgeons info and if he does pediatrics. Well, I recently was contacted by someone on here and I lost their email. So, if anyone wants my surgeons info, please feel free to message me. The biggest question I get is if he can do pediatrics and although he doesn’t, the man he studied with in Australia does. SO, I don’t want to just plaster all their info on the internet but seriously, message me if you want their info.
