I would say anybody who’s watching this, make sure you ask your doctors. Because physicians are so good at telling you what’s wrong and telling you what the process is going to be to get you healthy and make sure that you are able to live a long life. But make sure you ask what medications are there that you can take during radiation treatment, should you be eating red meat, which I’ll tell you the answer’s yes from me. What other things can you do to feel comfortable, because they’ll tell you how they’re going to treat you, but you need to be your own advocate and make sure that you ask the questions on how can I feel best during this hard, horrible process.
