Things You Should Know

Okay, the first thing I'll tell you about radiation for cancer is that -- you don't have to really DO much of anything. The technicians take care of everything. You lie down and they move you so that you are lined up with the machine's coordinates.

Now, it might get scary when the big machine is turned on and starts to make funny noises and move around the table vertically. The first time you go through it is the worst. I think it is setting parameters. After that, it seems to me, it doesn't take so long, and it might not be doing the same thing during every treatment.  So it's not so scary as time goes on.

Technicians are great.  So sometime take them so candy or pastries to get on their good side. . .
