SDianneB Posted December 10, 2004 Share Posted December 10, 2004 YAY!! The first day that I didn't consider the mask to be my worst problem of the day! Finally got these 2 techs talking, and had a funny conversation with the guy tech about the MRI tube. He hates it too! But, he was under one for over an hour once, and said he was wanting OUT. I told him the only way I could stay in there for 1 minute would be with general anesthesia! The other tech had a new haircut that was really great. I told her that if and when I had hair again, I'd like to have mine that way! Fridays are see the doc after treatment days, so I was happy to tell him that I wasn't having headaches, had taken Ibuprofin only twice since this started, and that was for what I thought might be a headache, but the Ibuprofin took care of it right away. He says that as long as the side effects from the radiation are less than they would be from steroids, we'll not do the steroids. Amen to that! I have no fatigue, and he said he didn't expect I would. The only thing I really feel is a mild pressure -- sort of like the pressure you'd feel when your ears are stopped up on an airplane, except milder. We talked a little about the wheeze, and he thinks it will just go away with time, and probably gets worse in damp weather like we're having now -- he is correct about that. I'm looking forward to the weekend, as usual. I LOVE Saturday mornings -- I snooze and watch tv and snooze a while, and just be lazy until at least 10:00 or so. Hopefully we'll see some sun this weekend. The timing with this disease was really strange -- here it is at the end of the year and I'm winding down the treatment phase, and will start off a new year having gone through all that and gone into remission. It is an open book, the future. What will happen and when is an unknown. But I'm mighty glad I'm around to face it. Di Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
