Bolus? That is interesting. i have not heard that expression. Mine is done done surface guided and I don’t have a tattoo. And then there is the variety where you have a tiny tattoo. It is all very interesting and I keep asking questions about the instruments and how it all works. As you say, every day a school day. I have now 10 out of 15 done and I am unbelievably tired. I go to sleep,every afternoon when I come back from hospital. And I have NEVER been a snoozer in all my life. I had no idea I could sleep during the day unless I was seriously ill. And there is a slight tenderness to the skin but apart from that I’m OK. My oncologist has said he would leave it to me when I start tamoxifen sometime during the radiotherapy. I decided to start on Monday. That way I have a bit of time to see if I have side effects to report to him at the next appointment. Anyway, next Friday, a small celebration will be due. Diagnosed in January, mastectomy in February, chemotherapy starting in in April, radiotherapy in July. I feel I was swept away by this wave, having handed my body over to the medical profession and I am hoping to gain some control again soon.
