So I finally had my first radiation session last week Wednesday. It was fairly uneventful having to lie there for 15 minutes while the machine buzzes around me.
My father-in-law has aptly named the machine “The Terinator”- and I suppose that is exacty what it is. It is in fact what kills the cancer.
I was supposed to have a session on Thursdy and Friday as well but due to equipment failure, I was only able to have the next session on Monday.
I am now 7 sessions in. I can definitely feel a difference in my throat. It is little tender and I feel like I have a few swollen glands. 23 Sesions to go. It is going to be hard.
I am starting to fear the terminator. I manage to put a big smile on my face as I walk into the chamber, but I know this is what is going to cause me much pain in the weeks to come.
It is fight I need to psych myself up for. One which I am struggling with at the moment.
