Hey, Everyone, I just wanted to say hi and that everyone on this blog is in my prayers! I tend to check here once in while; but I am also trying to to keep a positive outlook and sometimes TOOOO MUCH knowledge can have a negative effect; especially me, I tend to over analyze every little detail!!
Well, I a have a week and a half done; 5 more weeks to go. No pain yet, thank god for TOMO technology! I highly recommend anyone getting radiation going to a facility that utilizes this machine! The procedure is real quick and they are able to cut a whole in your mask to help with claustrophobia!!
Unfortunately, the taste buds are gone :( Everything taste like shit! Did anyone find any type of food appealing to them when this happened? I'm thinking one more week and then will mostly only be able to tolerate ensure plus, water, and milkshakes!!
What did the average person use for pain for the back of throat? I don't have pain yet but just was wondering if people use liquid pain killers or some type of fentynal patch!
Hope everyone has a good weekend!!!
