Treatment Starts

Just taken a call from the Radiotherapy Department at University College Hospital to say that my first appointment for the fixture manufacture will be tomorrow (28th) at 12.00. Followed by the second appointment on Friday. So that's good news

The Varian Rapid Arc Radiotherapy Machine

During the second appointment I will be placed in the fixture and a enhancement die pumped into me whilst a CT scan is taken. Lasers will be used to set my leg up in the correct position. This scan will then be used by the Oncology team to precisely plan the treatment programme.

So then it's 30 treatments, Monday to Friday for 6 weeks.

Updates will follow !!
