Hi everyone, I just joined not too long ago and all of your discussions have been very helpful thus far! Well I was just diagnosed in April with SCC and had surgery to remove my orange sized tumor growing out of my neck. I was 7 months pregnant during the surgery and had to wait to deliver the baby to start my radiation. Last week they pulled out all my wisdom teeth and got me fitted for the mask they used during radiation so I'm just about ready to start. I'm set to do my first treatment Sep 7 and I will go for 7 weeks. I just wanted to ask if y'all had any helpful tips for me during the treatment? I have a 6 week old baby so I know I will probably be quite fatigued during this time due to no sleep at night lol. Any tips would be most appreciated! Thank you all and God bless.
