We are adjusting well to this new routine of daily radiation.  I’m enjoying getting to know my technicians well and have met a few ladies in the waiting room this week.  So far no side effects and I’m feeling really good.  I even have sore muscles from working out! AND it’s a 3 day weekend – no radiation on Monday because of the holiday!!  Yay!!!

On Monday when I met with the Dr. he said to expect side effects to start after 10 treatments.  I’ve heard from others to expect them about half way through.  Who knows when and if they will appear, but so far this “honeymoon period” as the Dr. called it, is fine.  It’s nice to not be in pain (except for the sore muscles from exercising.  It’s nice to not have any fatigue, only a tired body from going to the lake and riding bikes with the girls. 🙂

 

I met with my OB on Monday before radiation as a follow up from having my ovaries out.  She  gave me the pathology report which showed no signs of cancer.  We didn't think there was any there, but it's nice to know for sure!

This is the waiting room, complete with warming cabinet for the robe I have to change into each day.

We were heading up to the Seattle Center on Thursday, so the girls came with me.  Our oldest came in to see the machine and meet my technicians.

One of the ladies I met in the waiting room is also going through chemo and just started losing her hair. I brought her a couple hats I loved.  This one is too hot for the summer, so I kept it and just took a picture to remember the day.
