Starting Radiation December 2021
I haven't seen this yet, and will delete it if there's already another one, but I'm starting radiation Dec 14, 2021. Got my tattoos and mold made today, and my protocol will be 16 days plus 1 mock. Christmas Eve and New Years Eve are off, so I should be done the first Friday in Jan.
Burns - I've always been afraid of burns.
Caring for burns - my center doesn't use Mepitel. I was hoping it did. Should I just get some and use it except for the actual radiation?
Dressing - how do I wear clothes that won't rub?
I guess I'll just see how it goes.
Editing to add that I came really close to just bugging out on the whole thing - lost my composure completely this morning on the way to the simulation and had to pull over and have a good cry. I don't know why radiation scares me so badly. Fortunately, cancer scares me more, so here we go.
Anyone else starting in Dec?
