Radiotherapy Appointment

Monday, 1 June 2015

Hello.

I had an appointment today in Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital to talk about Radiotherapy, we had to talk about all the side affects that I might get, like tiredness, redness on the area of skin, sickness, and the long term affects it might have, I didn't really want to talk about them but of course you have to. Then they made the mask for when I have radiotherapy and they also made a mould for my legs to keep me still, when they were moulding my mask it felt quite weird and at first I felt claustrophobic but I didn't panic which is quite good for me because I usually panic when things like that happen. I went for a CT and had to have the mask on, it felt ok and I think I will get use to it, they drawn 2 dots on my stomach at the beginning of the CT and at the end they made them permanent so 2 small tattoos, they are so tiny you can hardly see them. 

I start radiotherapy next Tuesday but me and dad are going to Exeter this Friday for a trial run but not actually have the radiotherapy, I will have it every Tuesday and Friday, this will affect my plans for this month that I mentioned in my last blog post, because my immune system will be very low and I can catch infections easier, which is annoying but i would rather have the radiotherapy to try and get rid of the antibodies!

But I am very excited to see One Direction and Mcbusted live on Saturday!!!

This is the mask I will wear whilst i have radiotherapy.
As always, thank you for reading
Speak soon
