Oh no! Don't let my experience put you off! I must say that up until then everyone I have met throughout has been lovely (especially breatscare nurses) and I hope when I had my first actual radiotherapy on Friday they will be the same. I will report back then! Good Luck to you too x
Thanks Jenny, I start treatment next Friday, hope I get someone a bit nicer! It was a bit of a shock to be honest, everyone else I have met so far has been so lovely.
Been for my first appointment today, having my tattoo etc and found it so daunting. Had I not read up on radio therapy and what to expect i would have been horrified at being told to 'undress to your waist now please' and being handed a 'modesty' cover of a tiny piece of paper by a young male a lot younger than my son. The young lady with him was also distinctly short on empathy. He gleefully told me that ladies 'well blessed' like myself may need a different machine and a lot more hassle and I was lucky the boss said it was 'ok'. No helping hand either when it was all over to pull myself upright (i have a back problem). I am absolutely dreading the next three weeks if it is going to be like today.
