First Toronto appointment.
So I went to meet Dr. Gladdy today and also met Dr. Charles Catton, the radiation oncologist. They are going to discuss everything at the tumor board meeting on Monday and call me Tuesday. So far, the plan seems to be 5 and a half weeks of radiation (28 days) with weekends off. Then 8 weeks break, then surgery. Things might change after the meeting, but at least there is a plan in mind. So looks like I will be staying in Toronto during the week and heading home on weekends. Doctor Catton has said that he will make sure they schedule me for early Friday morning and late Monday afternoon so that I can be home Friday nights and leave Monday mornings.... So at least I can spend time with my girls. Recorded everything the doctors said, so I will most likely listen to it again and know more then. Like Dr. Gladdy mentionned, on your first visit, you will feel very overwhelmed and only hear about 25% of what was said. Might post more once I listen to the recordings again. Feeling very overwhelmed at the moment. That's it for now.
