Hello everyone. I just found this site last night. Sure wish I would have found it earlier but maybe it was good I didn’t. I tried to stay away from all types of groups because I am a worrier and I didn’t want to add to the what ifs, etc. while waiting for endless test results. I started radiation treatment yesterday. I will have 20 treatments. No idea about dosage or anything, they don’t say and I don’t know what to ask. I just know that I fell into a category for qualified me for hypofractionated radiation. Doc said I could do internal radiation for 5 days twice a day, that was a no for me. I am a little behind in research, I just saw the rad doc for the first time last Wednesday, had planning Thursday and started yesterday. I was super busy last weekend and then I have had a really bad flare up this week of my Rhuematoid Arthritis, haven’t been able to use my hands. Trying to figure out if I should be on a special diet (other than make sure I eat protein daily), etc. Right now exercise is out of the question. I have been off my RA meds for three months and the only thing I am on for it right now is the dreaded prednisone so I am flaring up for days at a time. Right now it is my hands, wrists and hip. Keeping my arms above my head for treatment is not helping with the shoulder flare ups either. I can only guess that will continue the entire time. How much water should I be drinking daily?
