move over dory …

I’m afraid that, over the last week, I’ve morphed from an, albeit barely treading water, beautiful tropical fish into a very swampy green Princess Fiona!!

The actual radiation is easy and only takes about ten minutes from start to finish … the whole process including the commute to the hospital takes around two hours.

It’s the side-effects that are proving nasty and started almost instantaneously … nausea, a permanent headache; pins and needles in my face, hands and feet;  zero taste; awful balance and co-ordination and a very swampy fuggy brain … none of which are helped by a lack of sleep … a side-effect of all the steroids I am taking to try and keep the swelling on the brain under control and the headaches manageable.

It’s been a long, tough week but I’m a third of he way through treatment … five fractions down, ten more to go!!

I have a feeling that it will be a couple of weeks before Princess Fiona makes way for Dory again but we’ll get there.

Watch this space!

Always xx
