I didn't think I had any photos for Day23, but forgot I took these. Hope this isn't too graphic, but this is what I was facing yesterday during my "simulation" for my coming radiation therapy treatments.
There is the obvious ultrasound "probe", and the needles on the table that are used to implant golden "seeds" used for triangulation. The square black box on the table has a 12x13 grid pattern used to direct the needles to the planned locations in the prostate. You can get an idea of the length of the needles used in this procedure.
The golden seeds, along with three tattoos, will be used for alignment of the upcoming radiation treatments.
It wasn't as painful as it looks. Of course the Valium and Vicodins helped tremendously.
