Tomorrow, May 5, is the day they map out exactly where they will target the radiation. I have an appointment at Brigham and Women’s in Boston with Dr. Baldini at 9AM. I am interested to see how they do things. I know I get little tattoos the size of ball pen marks that they will use lasers to help line up the photon beam. They will also be making a cast for my leg to keep everything in the same place everytime I come in for treatment. I get another CT and MRI as well as an X-Ray to pinpoint the tumor and the margin they will be targeting around it. It takes her a week to use all the data gathered tomorrow to program the software for my treatment. Pretty high tech stuff.
Feeling quite a bit more pressure in my thigh over the last few days. The Advil and Tylenol help but not as much as before. I have been pretty active with the warm weather riding my bike and walking with Kathy. The exercise may be causing a little inflammation but I will not sit around and let this thing keep me from doing the active things I like to do everyday.
