Radiation treatment

It's not just a blast! Today was consultation with Dr. Treadwell the radiologist in Henderson. He seems competent. He described what will begin on Oct. 2nd: The larger the tube they put inside the vagina, the better the chance of avoiding affecting the bladder and the colon. It stays there for about an hour while they consult about the best way to proceed. When they decide, the radiation begins and last for up to 5 minutes. For the next two sessions I'll go through the same process again, because they can't rely on using the same decision as the previous week(s). BUT on Oct. 16th it "should" be over, and future appointments are for "surveillance".
