There are 3 things that have become a part of my daily routine since all this began and they are baths, sweat pants, and McFlurries and now that I just finished day 3 of radiation, I’ve been able to get a feel for it’s routine. The biggest thing I’ve noticed so far is that there isn’t a lot of comfort in the buttocks region when I lay on the table and even though the radiation only takes like 5-10 minutes, it is still long enough to make me a little squirrelly by the end (which isn’t good). So I used my brain (which still works pretty well by the way) and engineered an idea that I finally implemented and I have to say that it works pretty well. I knew that if I just had a little extra padding down there it would make a world of difference so I put on a pair of bicycle shorts and threw on my new favorite sweatpants over them (I think it would be weird if I showed up in just the shorts) to create what I call “Radiation pants”. Look for them to be in stores next Spring.
The process is getting quicker so the last two days I’ve only had time to listen to two songs a piece.
