Day two of radiotherapy complete. First impressions : organised chaos!
The staff are lovely and are wonderful but the delays so far are just awful. 2.5 hours on day one and 1 hour today. This means lots of waiting time in a not so nice place!
A nurse has told me to contact them each day before I leave to see if there are any delays. I will definitely do this as it is completely soul destroying sat in the waiting room.
The treatment itself is quick and painless. More time is spent getting me in the exact position than the actual radiation. I am in the room for 25 minutes and of that 45 seconds is radiation! I am the only patient receiving treatment on my leg at the moment so it takes slightly longer to get me into position each day, but this should get quicker as the days go on.
We have stayed at the most gorgeous little hotel which is only a mile from the hospital. Thank God we decided to stay over as the appointment times this week are sporadic. From next week they are at the same time each day which is easier for us.
Thanks for reading!
