Nick and I had decided that that I would have my radiation therapy done here locally at Hardin Memorial Hospital because of the time involved in daily treatments five days a week for six weeks. We could make the trip to Louisville, but it would be hard to do daily.
As we were watching the news tonight, there was a segment on Dr. Anthony Dragun and theBrown Cancer Center where I am currently receiving my treatment. Dr. Dragun is the doctor who I was originally referred to by my medical oncologist, Dr. Riley. In this news segment they interviewed Dr. Dragun on a new plan of care for breast cancer patients at Brown Cancer Center. It involves 5 weekly radiation treatments (5 treatments TOTAL) rather than five treatments each week for 5-6 weeks (25-30 treatments TOTAL). After watching the news Nick and I decided that it would be worth it to go and talk to Dr. Dragun and ask some questions before we make a final decision on my course of treatment.
