    Rest as much as you want, you're earning every bit of comfort you can give yourself right now. Hoping you feel better once the treatments are finished.

    This may not help much, but try to focus on a point in the future when all this will be behind you. Get as much rest as you can, and hang everything else until you feel better. Wishing you well, every single day.

    Yikes. I had a good friend who went through that with unfortunately the same reaction. His were spaced much further apart so he had more recovery time in between. That's a tough regimen.

    Hang in there, keep your "eyes on the prize".

    Many prayers!

    I did 7 weeks of every day a couple of years ago. I was begging to quit about half way through. The discomfort did go away pretty rapidly when it was over.

    Hang in there!

    PS. I sure wish I had access to proton radiation and that my insurance would have covered it.
