Treatment Countdown 10, 9, 8, 7, 6…

6 Million Photons…

According to my radiation oncologist, my radiation dose consists of 6 million photons.

I think this is a daily dose (as opposed to an overall total), and in fact, since I receive treatments from three angles, I may be receiving 3 x 6 million photons each day.

Guess clarifying that’ll be one more of those one-last-questions I’ll need to ask at my final consult with him. 🙂

Danger, High Radiation: I just might be glowing in anticipation of my treatments nearing an end.

And, yes, those ARE little lightning bolts all over my shirt.

  • Only five more treatments left to go,(left to go)
    Only five more treatments left to go; (left to go)
    And as we reach the finish
    The cancer will diminish,
    Only five more treatments left to go.

    It’s a silly thing, I know, – a bit stupid really, so I guess you can put me down as one of the points of your Tag-Line – the absurdities, but without the absurdities we can become too serious and being too serious can bring us down and thus have an effect on our recovery. Staying positive as you do, is the way to go.
