Today was the set up meeting with the radiologist. I was given a ct scan, molded and given alignment marks. The daily radiation process will ultimately be very fast.
I have a key card to alert everyone of my arrival, so there’s no check in.
They made a mold of my back on the bed that goes into the radiation machine.
It’s made of micobeads, like a bean bag, and they sucked the air out of it with a vacuum. My arms go up over my head and hold that bar near the top of the bead.
When radiation starts next week, we’ll have one dry run to get everything in perfect alignment, make any adjustments, then the following day start the treatments. They shouldn’t last more than 15 minutes.
