Easy, peasy. . .

After IMRT, Cyberknife was easy, peasy.  5 days, 40 minutes each time, much quieter.  Meds administered after--steroid and anti-nausea.  Saturday was good, I had a pedi with my sister!  Sunday was not so good, headache, pain. . .  I know that I will have it tomorrow or Thursday because of the steroid.  Shouldn't have sores in my mouth, shouldn't have burnt skin.  Do have a little pain in throat and right side of neck, those beams needed to come out somewhere!  I tried to keep up on my husband's Kindle but it is not user friendly with me.

...and how interesting about the Cyberknife.....you and Candi are the high tech girls here when it comes to rads.  Sorry you don't feel totally good....but I know it's way better than 7 weeks of IMRT....so I'll bet there's still a skip in your step even with a headache.

that you've had a headache and pain, but I'm so happy it was much easier on you! My Kindle isn't user friendly with me, either :)  Glad to hear from you!!

Sound a Lot better vs IMRT. Way to be strong, and an inspiration to us all.

Thanks for the schooling on the Cyberknife teach, I’ll consider that something learned today.

Was the pedi something I should have done with rads, because I did not know and I do have a sis (or three).

I am glad the treatment wasn’t too stressful and that the duration is so quick. Keep on getting better and may your headache go away.

Yes Matt, your sister's would love to have a pedi with you!  It's a pedicure, but I think that you know that.  Since my eye surgery last November I don't trust my one eye vision to trim those tootsies, so I do like to go for a pedicure once in awhile.

Headache is less than what I was dealing with for the last few months.  Nerve pain on cheek is also less daily, will start cutting back on meds. slowly.

Did they give you anything to help with those headaches ?  Those steroids are rough on a body.  I will be following your post with much interest, as Candi's.....thank you for sharing your experiences through out.  Many hugs sent your direction !  Katie

Glad to hear from you. I have been thinking of you and hoping it was going to go as easy as mine did. I think today is 3 weeks out for me, I lose track of time. I didn't get any meds with mine, no steroids no anti-nausea. I didn't experience any nausea. Was back to work immediately. The very slight sore throat on one side is gone, no signs of burning on neck. MMW helped me through a couple of days with some burning sensation but otherwise no side effects.  I know this is only for isolated tumors at this time but pray it will lead to an easier replacement for IMRT. 

God Bless!
