Hi everyone, just an update on the latest treatment. I thought after 7 or 8 spins of radiotherapy this was going to be easy, but I was too quick. I didn't get any skin burn or rashes, but as the wheel spun round more doses I started to get really tired. Not the total wiped out feeling that I've had from chemo but I felt really fatigued and had difficulty get my head off the pillow some mornings. I also have oesophageal radiation and this is quite painful like really bad trapped wind! And difficulty swallowing food. I have been given an antacid mixture which also numbs the gullet and take it 15 minutes before eating but I'm not finding it really helping, so I'm sticking to eating lots of soft foods etc. the treatments finished on Friday so I'm hoping things will improve this week so I can get out golfing again next week. My next appointment is not for another 9 weeks so I'm going to try and enjoy this treatment free time. Especially as both my children have told me in the past 2 weeks that I am going to be a grandad again next January and February so that will make me focus on keeping going.
Mind you if the weather doesn't improve soon up here in Scottishland I will be heading of to warmer climes for a week or three.
I hope everyone is keeping as well as they can.
