That is totally natural you are just about to embark on what is your final part of active treatment, and like when we first started this journey it is a little bit fear of the unknown, it is not surprising that you will feel emotional, but mate you are so nearly there.
Isnt it wonderful to have the sun on your face, it just makes everything feel that bit better. Dont worry we are all here beside you and will get you through.
Heres a pair of the tough pants for ladies who are struggling a bit, got big pockets so that we can all get in to support you, and hopefully will make you smile
Sending you hugs
Dont worry they will be very gentle and considerate.
If it is anything like mine, your planning apt tomorrow will consist of having a chat with the rads nurse about what will happen when you have your rads. You will then go through to a room where they will do all the measurements that they need to do following the information they have been given from your oncologist.
You will have some tattoes, which are for them to line everything up to when you have your rads. It just feels like a tiny scratch. The CT scan is nothing to be worried about, the machine just moves back and forward over you for a few minutes
The other thing they did at my appointment was to give me a tour of the rads unit itself so that I could familiarise myself with it
Well done, onwards and upwards now to radiotherapy.
There is a monthly thread on the radiotherapy section if you want to post on there when you have your date and I am sure you will get loads of help and support from the ladies.
This is good news, it must be a weight off your mind.
Keep doing your exercises you'll need it for the radiotherapy, i start mine this Wednesday.
Best Wishes to one and all
Great news, I'm so happy for you, now you can really start to think about when the treatment ends, two months from now and you might be done. Now you can relax for a few weeks.
Mhaz, it could be just the nerves repairing, I still get sudden twinges even after 18 months. But why don't you post your question on the Ask Our Nurses page, and get some advice from them?
I think part of this journey is having to deal with the worry about whether something is wrong, it's easy to be anxious. But some people do get infections so it's best to talk to someone, your BCN may be able to advise tomorrow.
Hope all is well, take care.
