radiation day 1

Hickman insertion had a bit of complication yesterday. My chest and shoulder are still a bit sore now. Blood counts were normal, white count 5.7, hb 13.1 and platelets 179.

Had my first radiation this morning. It was painless, but i felt very tired after that. The room looks like a ct scan room, only instead of going through the ct scan, they place you in front of the radiation machine and shine the radiation towards you. I vomited a couple of times today, but so far nothing i can't handle. At 3.30pm, i was sent for my second dose of radiation.

Am going to rest some more now.
