Hi all,hope you are all well as can be expected.
Just thought I would do a quick post with a bit of an update.Got past the third of the way marker last Wednesday 3rd and I found it pretty easy so far,but the next day Thursday 4th,I'm starting to get a a niggle or two,I empty my bowels twice every morning but I am always left of this feeling of always wanting to go again but can't,best way to describe it is it's like having a torpedo in the tube but unable to fire it (what a terrible analogy eh?) the other thing is I'm up every two hours to pee,neither of these things are having too much effect on my daily life and I can and will cope with them,I just hope that they don't get any worse.
For me the worst thing is the delays,out of 14 treatments, 8 on time and 6 with half hour delay,one day was 45 minutes,it's not that I mind waiting as the R/T dept is brand spanking new and quite a nice place to be but NOT with a full bladder.I know that the staff do all they can to get you seen to on time but if there is the odd break down or a patient comes down from the ward,then it has a knock on effect, still,a small price to pay I think.
One concern I do have is that after finishing my 3rd week of R/T I have not been seen by a doctor in that time,is that normal?At the end of my 2nd week I did get seen by one of the radiologists asking me how I am and such like,is that good enough do you think?
That's it for now folks and I would be very grateful for any comments on the above.
I would also like to thank you all again for encouraging me to go ahead with the R/T as I do not have a single regret.
