    This mask keeps me from moving as they give radiation to me. This machine is the spherical cat scan that they use to plan treatment. I get to keep the mask when it's all done!

    Confused, if you email the pictures to me at [email protected] I will post them for you.
    EDITED TO SAY: Never mind, you figured it out.

    Ooooo way kewl mask! I suppose they won't let you keep the cat scanner, eh? That's ok. We have 4 cats that do a good job of it here.

    Hugs and blessings.

    do you want some chianti and fava beans with your treatment? lol

    how long do you have to be in the machine? hope the treatments are working great for ya!

    My actual radiation starts on Thursday. I'm glad to get started.

    They put three little tattoos on me to line up everything for each treatment. It looks like I have a blue freckle on each side of my neck and on my chest.

    Does that make you feel claustrophobic at all? I'm glad your getting your treatment started soon (((((confusedjw))))

    I sincerely hope your treatment goes well and you are cured. A family member had sinus cancer last fall and went through the same radiation treatment with the mask. He just had his final treatment and is completely cured. He got along fine. I was with him for a few of the treatments and I admired his courage for being in that mask thing. He got to take it home with him too. Wishing you all the best. Arwen
