Topic: Internal radiation therapy
Since I last wrote I have had 2 Sirtex internal radiation therapies. I had reaction to the contrast but that was treated during procedure & 2nd treatment took med prior to prevent reaction. I had the last treatment 4 weeks ago. I have been having nausea & some pain in area of liver. I also am having bad taste in my mouth. I will have an MRI next week to determine how effective the radiation was & what will be done next. Our HMO medicare supplement has been good for us so far but is frustrating to have to wait for all the authorizations. So far everything has been authorized for me to have my treatments etc. at UCIrvine Chao Comprehensive Cancer Center. I take one day at a time & have the best supportive friends & prayed for daily. God is the Great Physician & He knows best. I have peace that I am doing what I need to do.
