Yesterday went well and my radiation oncologist who was trained at Sloan Kettering in NY with Dr. Nancy Lee (look at her video and how she treats her patient it moved me to tears). My r/o Dr. Sophia Edwards-Bennett spent a lot of her precious time with me explaining and going over the treatment plan looking at the art of the dose painting and how she plans to spare organs at risk etc. I feel blessed to have her and told her that. Met many other cancer survivors and plan to engage with as many as I can during the treatment waiting times.
I do not know how many of you were treated with TOMO/IMGT or TOMO/IMRT not sure which it really is, but would love to hear from you. You have a scan done each time to insure exact position with treatment plan.
She is blocking my spinal cord will have very low dose in the brain stem area, will spare one of my parotids, not affect the ear, eyes, mandible etc.
This is not to say I will not have many of the side effects you all had. The drive is about 3 hours round trip, as Wilmington NC does not have TOMO.
I have been researching meal supplements that are healthy, liquid, and quick to make and wondered if anyone has tried the Garden of Life raw protein meal replacement? Any other low sugar high cal. healthy options you can recommend? I do not drink milk or eat dairy. I drink almond, soy or rice milk.
Thanks for all your support so far,
