Calling All Mepital Film Users!
Hi all, I found out about mepitel film prophylaxis for radiation from some other posts on this board. I asked my RO about it. She said that they do not typically use it but that I am welcome to if I want. So I went and ordered some from CVS. Since my radiation team doesn't typically use it I want to make sure I know what to do with it! Just cover the entire radiation field as a second skin for the length of the radiation and replace if films start falling off? I found some info on the manufacturer's website about how to apply it for breast radiation but it doesn't say anything about how long to leave it on, etc.
