Well we did it.. Dan had his first radiation treatment today, he was thrilled, he didn't need to disrobe, and it took less than 10 mins in the room. In fact he said the radiation took less than 2 mins. You have to love technology.. Er...Maybe not. However they did serve chocolate after!
We also got a sample of Mugard! 1 bottle free in a cool Mugard bag! Then came home to 6 bottles on the foot door step. They had just heard of Mugard last week. They approved and highly endorse the use of the calendula cream. They referred me to the doctor for use of the glutimine use. 2 out of 3 isn't bad for a first day.
Here's our questions..
1) Dan started swelling on day1? About 5 hours after treatment. Did anyone else remember having swelling that quick? Good sign? Bad sign?
2). How often did you all apply the calendula cream? Is there such a thing as too much?
Tomorrow is chemo, I was so jumpy today, although I hope good at hiding it, hoping tomorrow is less nerve racking .. But then again it is chemo too.. Cisplatin and taxol(msp?).
I'd do anything to go through this for him.. And he really is ok with it, it's just not easy to watch someone you love hurt.
Thanks again for all the kindness and support I have found here.
