The first week of treatment was fairly anti-dramatic. Getting in and out of UTSW is easy, and the staff there is great. I walk in, take my shirt off, and lie down on the table to get clamped down with the Hannibal mask. So from the time I walk through the doors to the start of treatment is literally 3 minutes tops. A few adjustments on the table, pulling or moving me slightly, and checking the green lasers that come from the corners of the room to make sure I'm in the exact position needed, and the tech says "Ok, here we go.........hold still!!!!!!"
Hold still, really? Do you think that I can move, or slide any direction? I can't move my lips or my eye lids......is there a real fear that I'm going to move 5 inches down the table? With that said, this is me, bolted to the table, getting ready for the Mega Radiator 2000 (which Mindy mistakenly called the Mega Radiator 1000 this morning.......like I would use that old 1000 technology!!!!!)
