First Treatment

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Had my first radiation treatment today - it wasn't bad at all (I hear it gets rough after a few weeks as the dosage accumulates...). I got my tattoos yesterday (they are there to help the techs line up the treatment site correctly each day).

My eating schedule got all messed up though since I'm going in at midday this week, right around the time I usually eat lunch (they didn't have earlier appointments open this week - I will be going in earlier starting next week), so I ate lunch late, then ran in the evening and didn't quite have the energy to finish the time I wanted to run because it had been too long since I'd eaten. Nothing to do with the treatment - I just need to straighten out my daily schedule this week so that I'm not too hungry going into a workout! I think I may try dividing my midday meal into two snacks (before & after treatment) & just eat dinner at my normal time.
