almost done or so I thought

Hi Ladies, I've had 22 radiation treatments and thought I only had 3 more to go however I talked to the Dr. today and he said we do more intense treatments next. I asked him what that meant and he said he will zero in on the site now which will be more directly toward the vagina and cuff area. These treatments will be approx. 1 1/2 weeks and will still be the external type.

Has anyone heard of this ??? or been thru it ??? I finally figured out what I can eat and when and how many Immodium to take but I was thinking I was almost thru with this. Oh well in the overall picture whats another 1 1/2 weeks as long as they get it all !! Thanks for listening to me vent !!!!!!

Hi Robin, it is a horrible thing to have to go through, sometimes you just dont think you can do it anymore. But you have come this far and like you say another 1 1/2 weeks isnt that bad....... I find that most DRS like to make sure that they have given radiation the best possible chance to get all the bad cells as you can only have radiation once in the same place , ( or so I have been told )

When I had my radiation , the vagina and the cuff were the areas that were specifically targeted.

You hang in there , it will be all over soon. Remember we are here always for you. Much love ,

Hi Robin,
So sorry to hear you are not quite finished yet. You have been through alot already. But it sure sounds like you are getting great care and thats the main thing. Hopefully the time will fly by, and you will be all finished for good!!
Keeping good thoughts and prayers for the balance of your treatments!!
Holiday Hugs,

Hang in there, Robin! You can do it! It must be disappointing to know you have more to go than you originally thought, but it's just a short step to take to get to that luscious cancer-free garden of life that is ahead of you. You'll be done before the New Year!
