After today’s treatment I will only have 6 left! It has been a long and fatiguing road for me, for all of us really. I have no idea what the results will be when I get my first scan back, 4-6 weeks after treatment ends. My understanding, from what I’ve read, is that the first scan usually come back questionable due to brain swelling and radiation necrosis. This typically makes an accurate reading difficult. Its hard to tell swelling, necrosis, or re growth with any certainty. Unless there is dramatic re growth, or a new tumor somewhere else in the brain.
My hair has really started to fall out now. I was hoping to just go bald, but my hair is falling out where the radiation is concentrated. So now I have a mo hawk down the top of my head.
I’ve also come down with pneumonia, but the Dr. has prescribed antibiotics for me to knock it down before it gets out of hand.
