    radiation and chemo

    Procedure or Surgery

    It was a very horific expeirence. I'm at stage 3b and with all the new technology they can't take the lung, which i wanted them to do. it in the upper part of my chest right across from the esphagas. I have been told that radatin will bunt the bottom of the espagas and i won't want to eat or drink.I have to say though that god blessed me by finding it as they did.

    External radiation

    Radiation

    this is what is expected to bwe done on mondat 8/6th 2012, @ 10;30 I will go for my simulation . This is where they put the dots around where the radiation will be aimed at and the fit you on a bed in a mold. you have to lay very still. all this feels lke your not really you that this is some sort of dream and you will wake up and it will all go away. this is mind bogeling. to say the least.
