I saw on my follow up report that the radiation is of the vaginal cuff...HDR

 

Anyone can give a guess on how many treatments that may take....do they do that everyday?   

 

I know I am jumping ahead but I am the type that does not like Surprise! lol   

 

Thank you for all your help!

    Bracytherapy

    I had vaginal cuff HDR, aka bracytherapy, aka the radioactive dildo, 3x at 2-3 day intervals, as well as a "vaginal boost", i.e. a higher concentration, done at the end of external radiation (daily for 5 weeks, totaling 25 treatments, plus 3 more days for the "boost").
