Might need radiation

Lvas Member Posts: 3
I'm scheduled for a P.E.T. scan and then a evaluation with my Radiation Oncologist about radiation. Because its my neck, I'm going to have a mask fitted for my face so the radiation hits the same area all the time. Has anyone else had the mask? Its sounds so clostrophoebic doesn't it? Also, I'm worried that since I did well with the Chemo, I'll do bad with the radiation. Any thoughts or words of wisdom?
