Chris, enjoy your weekend off you deserve, it the stress of travelling five days a week for treatment is something I won’t forget in a long time. I know some people have to travel a lot farther than i did! Getting to the centre of the city of Bristol where I was treated was not fun at all, as there were about 20 parking spaces at the hospital and all the multistories parking locally was very expensive.
If you remember I completed my RT first week in September last year and i’m still getting bouts of diarrhoea that come back for no reason as I control my diet very well and the mucus discharge is still a problem for me, so much so that to put it simply sometimes my bum cheeks are stuck together!!
Most of these you can get around by becoming organised and accepting them, but the problem peeing is something you really need to keep on top of and tell the nurses every time you have a problem.
I clearly remember being asked every day by the Radiotherapy staff as I was getting ready for treatment, were there any changes or anything new that I should tell them about before commencing my fraction.
They always emphasised that nothing was too small or insignificant and it was better that I told them anything I was unsure of. I consider myself lucky to have got through radiotherapy fairly scot-free I wish you all the best in the rest of your fractions and keep in touch
