Radiotherapy - over half way

What a difference a day makes. With IBC, that can be a positive or negative thing. Today it is positive. I was fortunate to be given radiotherapy so quickly, though emotionally it shook me up. I had one of those moments where I needed to ask whether it was the right thing to continue. When the pain eats away at you, hope also gets etched away. The first day, I felt queasy afterwards and very drowsy - not sure if that was due to overall tiredness. On the second day, I was sick a couple of hours after the radiotherapy, not much, but it came on very rapidly. On the third day, I was sick with a little bile. I increased my anti-sickness tablets on the fourth day, having one before and then two other ones after. This seemed to do the trick.
I have upped the strength of dihydrocodeine. Maybe this is making me sleepy? The pains on my left side, from my ribs down to my leg, seem reduced. In the morning, there is stiffness, but I’m not feeling so much nerve pain dancing across this area. It’s been tough, but maybe things have changed for the better.
