Before any treatment could be started, I had a radiation simulation appt. This is where they measure my thigh/hips & make a mold to position me the same way for every radiation treatment. The angels of the beam, how many, how much was determined at this appt. Highly technical for ME but none the less, needed to be done. I was scared because I didn’t know what to expect.
Kind of silly, looking back. Quite painless & the tech called me by name, even though I had not met her. Dr. Frassica had called her to discuss my case & she was aware I was on the list for the day. The tech used to work for Dr. Frassica at JH Green Spring. Small world. They had the measurements needed, took what looked like a garbage bag & activated it. Basically, by pounding the bag, the ingredients inside became liquid & the bag was molded to my thigh/hips. Measurements were done & positioning was accomplished before the mold hardened. Very easy in the scheme of things!
