I'm just home from my radiation treatment. I didn't see my radiation oncologist after all. Apparently, I have not earned any additional superior wisdom, weapons or gold. Maybe next week.
I got home as quickly as possible and applied aloe vera lotion as far as I can reach. I'll get Kevin to apply it on my back (where the radiation beams exit my body) as soon as he gets hom. I can feel the sunburn effect today. I felt it almost immediately. My throat is also slightly sore, which is to be expected eventually because of the radiation near the throat (where some lymph nodes are).
I really have found the trick (for me) for zoning out during radiation treatments. As long as the music is turned up loudly, I go on a complete mental vacation. In fact, it almost startles me when the technologists come back into the room and tell me I can relax my arms.
I also feel suddenly very tired.
7 treatments done. 23 to go!
