Brain Tumor Radiation Treatment #15

15 of 28, 3 full weeks complete, and officially more than halfway done with radiation. w00t!

I have contracted what I’m calling the 4 o’clock flu. Because I am getting sick at that time every day now. Pretty sure it’s a treatment or med side-effect causing it because of it being timely, but which one is anyboday’s guess at this point. I take between 16 and 20 pills every day…

My radiation mask is unbearably tight because of the steroids. Talks have begun between techs and my oncologist to see what they can do. Possibly adding a diuretic to help me shed some of the water weight.

I can bear the discomfort of the mask, because me & pain have had a weird relatationship for a really long time. But if they can’t lock me in place because I don’t fit? Well, that’s a problem.

Scar is looking good. Some irritation from radiation making it red. Feels like sunburn.

TGIF, though. The weather in metro St. Louis is gorgeous! Also, construction wall pics just because.
