I have received my list of rad appts 18th Sep--29 Oct and it just states the dates followed by the word Varian6 is this a name for a certain radiation treatment. I don't get much info on my treatment, I will see my head of the team tomorrow to ask questions but usually I dont understand the answers unless I looked up on the net. I know its IMRT and with a tight mask and they marked me and the mask and it should be about 15 minutes of treatment each day, 5 days a week. I also don't know whether to get my yearly flu jab before treatment or after its due in the middle of the treatment when my immune system may be low. Since my op and losing a stone in weight I have regained nearly all the weight so if I lose some during treatment it shouldn't be too bad. I'm eating and swallowing normally and eat regular meals, have saliva and full taste buds. It's a pity all this is going to be knocked out again with the rad.
