I’m going for my first of 2 brachytherapy sessions on Wednesday.
I’ve got to be there 8am.
I will be having a general anaesthetic and they will insert the rods in the 15 mins that I am asleep. After that I will be lay on bed for between 14 and 19 hours during which time I will be intermittently blasted with radiation.
I’m just looking forward to getting it over and done with so I’m not really worried about it.
Most people seem to have more sessions but for shorter periods and can go home the same day.
I’m just wondering if anyone on here has had similar to what I’m having and want to share their experience of it.
I’m reassured that it’s not going to be too bad and after the rest of my treatment I do believe it.
I’m just interested to know as like I say, no one else seems to have had treatment like mine x
