I started radiation on Thursday this past week, so only 2 treatments so far. I will be receiving a total of 30 treatments. The dr said it will probably be a couple of weeks before I could see redness. I am using a cream twice a day to hopefully keep the skin irritation/burn minimal. Starting this week I have treatment everyday, Monday-Friday.
My ovary removal surgery is scheduled for October 12. I will most likely not receive radiation on that day and possibly the next depending on how sore I am.
My hemoglobin went down slightly this past week, but not enough for any concern. I still get short of breath on exertion, but I am now able to sit up for longer periods of time. It’s progress!
I’m still waiting to hear back from the IU dr. He reviewed the 147 pages of records from my oncologist/hematologist and requested more before he decides if I can have a telehealth visit or have to travel to Indy for an in person visit. I’m really hoping for the telehealth. I fear a long car ride and trying to get around an unknown medical facility.
Thank you for the continued thoughts and prayers!
