[CANCER] Stereotactic Radiotherapy Completed #BreastCancer

So, we have finished the first of the new treatments… there was an ‘end of treatment bell’ outside the room. I thought about it, because I think we can celebrate every little chunk of treatment (though I know a lot of stage 4 patients find them very difficult to cope with)….

This treatment was thankfully pretty straightforward also – took a bit longer than last time, but after about 55 minutes (I’d asked Claire to count) we were done (even had time for a chat with the lovely staff – to whom I had, of course given cake):
