May 1, 2012 Brain Radiation
12th whole-brain radiation treatment completed this morning at 8:30. Just 3 more treatments to go this week. Then, I will probably have a followup MRI in a couple months to measure success. I am gradually getting more fatigued as the radiation accumulates. My mouth is frequently becoming coated with a thick mucus. Need to drink lots of fluids and rinse my mouth often. Generally, I feel OK. Sometimes, I eat because I realize that I should vs actually feeling hungry. I have lost a couple pounds; but, nothing significant. Based upon 3 years ago, some of the side effects won't show up until after treatment completion. Can't wait to sleep a little later in the mornings!
