Hey everyone!!! ❤
I know it’s been a bit since I’ve posted but I’ve been super busy! I had some time tonight so I wanted to post a quick update, Incase anyone was wondering how I’ve been.
I’m back to work full-time now, so YAY! It’s been super exciting and nice getting back to a somewhat normal routine.
Radiation started last week and I have about 6 weeks of treatments in total which (I think) totals about 24 treatments. I have treatments everyday, Mon-Fri early in the morning and they treatments themselves take about 15 mins or so.
I had a specific pillow made that molds to my head and I lay under the machine that transmits small doses of radiation to the effected spots over the 6 week period.
I’m sure radiation (like everything else) effects everyone differently. But, for me, I’ve been pretty good. I haven’t had any skin irritation or fatigue (yet but hopefully I don’t) I feel that maybe the radiation even gives me more energy..
Its recommend to use certain creams/lotions during radiation to help prevent skin irritation and dryness. I’ve been using aquaphor! I don’t love the oily feeling it leaves afterwords but I do think it’s honestly the best to use for your skin. All of the other products have so many other ingredients that I won’t trust them with my sensitive skin.
Well, that’s all the time I have tonight! Time for me to relax and get ready for another long day!
Take care everyone – until next time ❤
