So, Hi, all!
I start radiation around August 6 or 7, 20 doses in total, including the boosts (4 weeks, 5 days a week). I go on the 26th of July for what I presume is the CT scan and making of the mold and/or tattooing. I don't know if that includes the simulation or not. I've had my first appointment with the RO, which included a discussion of how many sessions, a short video on the procedure, and a review of my history. I completed Paclitaxel (Taxol) on June 26, but I still have several months of Herceptin ahead.
I had a question about the planning CT scan. Is this done with contrast? What else do they "see" on the scan? Just curious.
I read a lot of helpful info about things to take and have on hand.
I guess the hardest part for me is that I live an hour south of the radiation center and an hour north of work. I'm able to telecommute 3 days a week, but the rest of the time, it's going to be hours of driving. UGH.
