Unhappy - Pre-radiation markings Pre-radiation markings

Monday is my second appointment for my 2nd markings... before I start my radiation treatment......still have no start date but after Monday I'll probably know. I'm really dreading it but want it all over & done with.

Pre-radiation markings

Hi Mori!
Are they doing the pinpoint tattoos? That's what they did to me- it was no big deal- just hurts for a second like a shot. I ended up with 9 permanent tattoos! Do you know how many you will have? Are yours tattoos, or are they just marking the skin? I don't think the tattoos were really necessary, because with the pen markings they put over them, the pen markings were still there every day. The only time they really had to look for my tattoos were Mondays. Let us know how it goes! And I promise radiation is a piece of cake. The worst part for me was the drive- which wasn't that bad, it was about 35 minutes each way. Keep us posted!
Take Care!

Pre-radiation markings

Hi Mori!
I was just looking back on your posts, and saw that you were looking at Tamoxifen and Aromidex. I just started on Aromidex a couple of weeks ago and it is going great. I haven't had any side effects at all. I have night sweats, but not bad- just take on and off covers- not soaking anything. Have you started anything yet, or will you wait until after radiation- I waited until after radiation and my hysterectomy so I could go right on Aromidex.

Pre-radiation markings

Hi Ladies & thanks for responding to my thread. I've been taking Tamoxifen but was told to stop it for the duration of the radiation treatments. My tattoos & first markings were done at my first appointment with CT, this time they did different markings while setting me on the table. I start Friday...Lol!
