I had my first "booster" radiation treatment today. Fortunately, the past day or so, the radiation burn has mostly healed. I have four more booster treatments and will finally finish radiation treatments this Friday! YAY!!
I did resist radiation treatments because I didn't want to risk losing the ability to have an implant. But it was nice to hear from my plastic surgeon awhile back that there is a Plan B for reconstruction. Next month sometime, I will ask about that process.
In the meantime, late last week, I noticed two black spots within the open skin wound. I asked the doctor about them today and her opinion was that these two black spots represented tumors that were forming and that the radiation has killed them and the black spots are dying cancer tissue. YAY again!! More evidence that the radiation is doing what it's supposed to be doing!!
I was only 1-for-3 playing softball yesterday, so Deechiro won't be in the paper this week. Darnit!
Well, more later .. . got to do some things. Have a great day everyone!
