My Radiation center had technical problems all week and will not be up until Tuesday. My completion date just got moved up by 8 days. I am disappointed, because I am giving myself two weeks to return to work after the completion of treatment. I am due to return to work on Oct.15, my last day was initially scheduled for Sept.25, now Oct.2nd.
The week off was a mixed blessing, I was in a lot of pain due to proctitis and skin burns, and some healing took place. Though it doesn't feel measurable. I am not able to lie on my back in bed or sit for very long. I am sure some healing occurred.
Question: I have 7 Rad treatments to go: Will I lose any of the gains I made this week healing?
I am so disappointed in the completion delay and potential delay in returning to work when I planned.
