Tag Archives: tattoos for radiation


Yesterday saw the first of two visits to the radiation oncologist before the last chemo cycle begins next week.

Having sworn in the past that I’d never get a tattoo, there will be a join the dots game ready to play with soon so that the radiologist can hit the required target.

The good news for this phase of the treatment is two-fold.  Radiation will start sooner than I thought AND it will be every week day for four weeks, not five as I was originally advised.  That means I’ll be done with both the chemo and the radiation in just two months.

After that it will mostly be a matter of “keep taking those tablets!”
