I've spent the week having radation twice a day and working on jigsaw puzzles in the waiting room. With my usual talent for dissociation and denial, I think more about the puzzles than what is happening. The experience of radation therapy is painless but oddly unpleasant - the moving table, the moving machines, the distictive three note buzz as the machine turns on.
In three hours it will all be over. I've been tired all week - napping after each treatment - but that's been the worst of it. My nipple is a bit tender and there is a deep, vague ache in my chest wall. Basically its all been tolerable and now it is almost done.
