Wish Me Luck, I see my Radiation Oncologist tomorrow for a semi-annual check up. I am sure my appointment is going to be ok,

but the very idea of going down to the dungeon( radiation oncology department is underground) and walking down that long corridor brings back awful memories.

I have to say my doctor and the staff there are wonderful. It's just the idea of having to go back that makes me a little uneasy. I think you can relate.

Again, it should be ok.

Ines,
wishing you good luck and easy time tomorrow. I hope you and your radiation oncologist will have good old friends chat. My radiation oncologist is a nice doc too.

I get the same feelings every time I have to go back. I'm praying all will be fine! Take a deep breath and KNOW that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Hugs,

Dear Bella Luna,

You are going to be fine. They basically are checking your skin and body because they were radiated. Concentrate on how wonderful your doctor and staff were. It will make for a more pleasant visit.

I told my radiation oncologist that the best thing about having radiation was meeting her. She was a very warm and caring doctor who I connected to immediately. She was the plus to the treatment!

So...may what I have saId might give you a different perspective.

Lots of Hugs,
Janelle

We will walk that long, dark hallway with you and be there during the visit. Just visualize all of us with flashlights to brighten the way. Hoping for a great checkup

Try skipping down that hall, and keeping in mind that the LAST time you were there, you could barely walk!!!

I did that, and I got smiles all around! (Remember, you never know who you are influencing, each and every moment!)

Dutch hugs, Kathi

Thank you Sisters for all the warm wishes! Your kind words really mean a lot to me. I am going to try your suggestion KathiM. Skipping down the corridor might do the trick! I know all of you will be there in spirit pushing me on and forward!

Take care, God bless.

Prayers are with you! I have a real love/hate relationship with doctors now: I hate to go and am a nervous wreck when I have to see them, but I hate to not see them and I am a nervous wreck if they tell me I don't need to be seen so often. Sigh....I guess I'm just a wreck ;-)

But rest assured, I will be with you today, and if you like lattes, I'll be your supplier!

What do they look for, anyway? My first post radiation check is April 1. My follow-ups are every 4 months. What kind of things are they making sure we don't have? Do they also palpate your breast? Mine just looked at my breast during radiation, didn't touch it, but she did prior to radiation. She also used the words "your tumor is" often. What tumor? Thought I had it removed!

I hope your appointment goes (went?) well. Did you skip?

Bella Luna,

I am so sorry that I am late weighing in on this post and sending you (((((hugs))))! It seems this is the week for joining not just hears, but arms so that we can skip down any long corridors; actual or imagined!

Hugs,
Chen
