I had my first SBRT (stereotactic body radiation therapy) treatment on Wednesday June 17. As expected the first treatment was longer because they were making sure everything was just right. I did not expect to have a metallic taste in my mouth afterward as well as being nauseated and very tired that night. The second treatment yesterday went very smoothly, but again experienced a queasy stomach and was very fatigued that night. I mentioned the symptoms at the second treatment and was told it was not usual, but everyone reacts differently. I meet with the doctor after today's treatment and hope to get some answers. If the fatigue continues to increase, I may need rides to the upcoming treatments. Now I will have a two day rest before treatment number four on Monday.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. Jean
