Today I'm at the half way mark of my radiation treatment. Only two and a half weeks to go for the external radiation. But, we discovered a complication today. Last week I had complained of my right arm hurting this week I noticed my hand and arm were swollen, they did an ultrasound on my arm ..... yes, I have a blood clot. Talked with the Doctor he said they would start me on blood thinners tomorrow. Then his nurse called wanted me to return corvallis and pick up the drugs today. At first I said yes I'll be there, then I called her back and said it will wait till morning. Maybe a mistake if the clot makes a run for it to the lush land of the lung. All this because of the stupid power port that was put in. I have enough problems keeping my blood counts up and now they have to thin it down and with all those side effects that go with it. Darn.....I'm just a little ticked......
