Radiation Update…

I met Dr. W last week at SCOA and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  He’s my Radiation Oncologist and I’m in love.  (You know, in that “he could be my dad” sort of way.)  My appointment was at 11.  I walked into SCOA at 10:50 and was immediately shown to my room (which is opposite of my SCOA norm).  Radiation to the left, Chemotherapy to the right.

I’m heading left, baby!

I was shown a video which explained everything about radiation, what to expect during my visits, and gave me a virtual tour of the types of machines and procedures I’d be exposed to. Then Dr. W came in and chatted with me for a while.  He was amazing.  Love that man.  And the best part is that he will be working with my other favorite Oncology doctor, Dr. B!  It’s all teamwork here, people.

And the best part?  No tattoos.  No breath hold technique!!   Yes!  Bring on the beams!

I return Monday for my simulation appointment and I’ll get started with my 33 treatments 4-5 day after that.  Can you tell I’m happy?   Yay.  Countdown is ON.

Go for it, girlfriend! You are almost there. I am so glad to hear that you’re “in love” with your new oncologist. That should help speed things along. By the way, Nonnie was right when she recently said that you should have been a doctor!
