Thought I'd make a new update thread for everyone. That's my 4th week done. I was in as a day patient yesterday to get my Brachy sleeve fitted for my treatment next week. I'm definitely not an early morning person, so getting up at 5:30am was hard but at least the traffic into Edinburgh was quiet!
I've never had any operations before so I was a bit nervous, but there were 4 of us all together waiting for the same op in the ward's tv room, dressed in hospital gowns, housecoats, stockings and slippers, so it kind of relaxed the atmosphere a bit!
I was in 2nd and everything seemed to go quickly. I recovered quickly and couldn't really feel any pain or discomfort. Once I was up and dressed I went down to get my regular radiotherapy, then back up to be discharged.
This is where I finally found out my stage as it was on my discharge letter. I know that sounds weird, but the Doctors I'd seen had never really came out and said "You are stage .......". So I'm officially stage 2b. They gave me a bag of pain killers and anti-nausea meds, I feel a bit period crampy but I think it's more poop related than op related.
So this week coming I have:
An MRI to check my treatment's progress
My last Chemo treatment
My regular Radiotherapy
Back into hospital super early for my 1st Brachy treatment
