Lubing the Boob

Today sees the 40% marker of my radiotherapy, and so far, so good.
I am applying the water based moisturizer twice a day, and apart from a slight puckering and hardness in the underlying tissue which was expected, I am ‘cooking’ nicely.

Watching the machine yesterday, I realised how exact their measurements have to be as there were a few problems lining me up. I haven’t lost much more weight, though looking at my progress in the back of my membership book, I’ve actually lost five pounds since those measurements were taken and I was tattooed accordingly.

Attached to tapes and wires measuring the machine’s output, I could see green laser lines marking grids and the contours of my shape beneath the glass screen.  It reminds me of the pin art kits we used to play with as kids.

Eight down, twelve to go.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
