Just about half way through the radiation treatments. Starting to dread the daily sessions. The blistering is so painful and it is difficult to find a comfortable position for my left arm. I have been tempted to hack it off just to keep it from rubbing on my radiation ravaged arm pit, side and what used to be my breast. For some reason when the doctor was describing the whole process, using terms like ‘pin pointing the beam’ & ‘localized treatment’, I envisioned a very small effected area. Heck no! I have a 10×10 square of red, sore, oozy blistered flesh. Makes me very grumpy.
Only a few more weeks to go. Then I get to prepare for more chemo.
Good news is that my hair is really coming in quickly now. Bad news is that the hair is coming in everywhere on my body. Not quite sure why my body thinks I need a beard now. Yep, a beard. Not that pretty, silky soft downy type fuzz. I have enough facial hair now that I could style it if I ever decided to embrace this new look.
