Finally got started yesterday, sounds strange to say you are so happy to start chemo and radiation but I am sure everyone here understands that.
Chemo went fine, port was plugged but that was easily fixed. Hooked up to the bag, 1st shower this morning was akward but easily do-able.
Radiation was also fine, more tattoos. I am not opposed to body art but felt yesterday as though I was offerring blank canvas to a 3 year old who might want to be a tattoo-artist when he grows up:) Treatment was quick after lining things up and re-tattooing.
I do have a question though. I got dressed and started to walk out and thought that there must be flames shooting out of my butt. It was intense to say the least, wanted to ride home on the hood of the car clinging to the windshield wipers for the ultimate fan experience. It took several hours to subside to the point that I was able to sit and walk without a lot of discomfort. It has not resolved completely so I am hoping it does not flare again today during treatment. I didn't have lotions or creams or anything like that on (nor had I). Anyone else remember having this problem?
