Right enough of this holiday malarkey and back to the business in hand.
At my last visit to my oncologist she advised me that I should have 3 or 4 rounds of radiotherapy. When I met with the radiotherapist she said that I would get 13 to 15 rounds of palliative treatment to alleviate symptoms. These rounds would be given on consecutive weekdays. I found this a little odd as altough I am getting some discomfort mainly around the tumour sites I haven't really complained about them. Anyway my reasons for this post is to ask if anyone has had this treatment and although I have read and seen the leaflet and video from RCLCF, I don't see if there are any things I can do to reduce the side effects of the therapy which are mainly, tiredness, possible skin irrititation and burning of the oesophagus.
I think I read somewhere, probably the U.S. Inspire site, that applying E45 cream to the skin, and taking Manuka honey prior to each treatment can reduce the side effects.
Hope everyone is keeping as well as they can and it hopefully it won't be long till summer😎
