Radiation is Over!!!

Posted Dec 19 2009 11:14am
Yesterday was my last radiation treatment! Its over! The doc said my fatigue should last for about a month but I should not lose anymore hair. My head is not that sensitive anymore, I think it was just the hair follicles dying that made it so sensitive and now that the hair is gone its fine, a little itchy at times, but fine. My headaches have been getting worse and I have been having some seizure type activity so they put me on steroids so they think there is some swelling and don't won't me to fly next week with swelling in my brain! I got to bring my mask home and when I take a pic of it I will post it. I might decorate it and hang it on my wall! Could be fun!

I have taken two doses of the steroids and I still have a headache. I just took some tylenol, hopefully that will help. If not, got something stronger upstairs!

Was invited to a Christmas party for tonight but if I'm not feeling better I'm not going.

I really don't like the fact that I have to be on steroids again. I gained 30lbs the last time I was on them and it took awhile but I finally lost 10 of those lbs! Its hard with minimal use of the leg and all the fatigue from the radiation procedure! Hopefully when I get back from Christmas break I will get my energy back and will have better use of my leg and can get the weight of then. Plus I am also hoping to get back to work.
