Radiotherapy - Day 1

The first radiotherapy treatment took place today.  I've been told the main side effect to expect is soreness and I've got to be careful to use aqueous cream regularly and be careful when washing and drying.  No swimming during the treatments or for a couple of weeks afterwards.  So there goes my plan to combine radiotherapy and swims at Ironmonger row baths.

For the first week I will treated with a machine called Mercury, but later on it will be Jupiter.  They name all the machines after planets.   They have all the planets there except Pluto - not really a planet anyway - and Uranus - might have been apt for certain types of cancer....
