  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Treatment over by perfectbitch on 17 February 2010 10:41am
I had my last radiotherapy yesterday. I had been scheduled to finish last Friday but the docs were so amazed that I had not had to be admitted that they gave me 2 extra treatments as a reward! : ). I have been taking daily salt baths which I'm sure has made all the difference to my skins ability to tolerate the treatment. Although the skin in the groin has broken down, the baths and not wearing underwear have kept it as healthy as possible. Oh yes, the oral morphine deals with the pain. I only take it when I need it - about 2 -3 times a day which is half of my allowed maximum dose. I don't have to go back until the end of March by which time I should be a grandmother - Rachel is due in 6 days time.

The docs say I will continue to get a little worse for 7 - 10 days but then I should improve. I am so glad that I managed to stay out of hospital - I think recovery is quicker when I'm at home.

Anyway, just thought I'd report on that particular milestone.
