Treatment Simulation

In keeping with the theme of “lasts”, today I had what will hopefully be my last medical appointment of 2016. I had a treatment simulation appointment with my radiation oncologist where I had a CT scan and other measurements taken to help determine my final treatment plan. I also received five little tattoo dots which will help to properly position me in the treatment machine – These are actual tattoos given with a little needle that will remain on my body forever. Over the next few weeks, my radiation oncologist will work with her team to develop a treatment plan specific to my anatomy.

Radiation will start in the new year. Until then, I am really looking forward to a break from medical appointments and being away from cancer ground zero for a few weeks 🙂
