Prior to reading your thread I spent an age trying to locate his “tattoos” 🧐🧐
Wishing you well.
Hope it helped. I can be a bit of a drama queen so don't let that worry you :)
My main takeaway from doing all this is as follows:
Make time around the hospital trips to get ready and rest afterwards - it can get tiring
Stick to the restricted diet to allow the bowel to empty easily
Get Sudocrem as the laxatives can make the bum sore
Keep an eye on the emotions - the HT plus the stress of the routine can cause wobbles
Be on the look out for an emotional "drop" once the treatment ends - going from 100 to 0 overnight is unsettling
Expect and work around fatigue but keep exercising
