Nice to hear from you. I had a quick look at your profile and we do look to be pretty similar.
As you can see from my posts I started RT on Monday of this week, now had four sessions, fifth session tomorrow then have the weekend off.
It has been really straight forward, and I have only been on the table for actual RT treatment approx 3 mins each time, it's really quick.
As you probably know you are told to drink three cups of water a half hour before treatment, the nurse tells you when to start. All in I am usually only in the hospital for approximately 45 minutes each visit.
I have no side effects at all this far, but I know it's possible some can kick in the further into the treatment you go. I was told by the Oncologist the first two weeks post treatment most people are really tired and some handle it better than others, so it's a matter of wait and see.
I will keep the forum updated as I progress through my treatment and will list any side effects (if any) that I experience.
Good luck on your journey Stevie always stay positive, and yes you are right together we WILL beat this.
Good luck to ALL who are fighting cancer,
