One of the benefits of treatment for me at MD Anderson Cancer Center was a complete tour of the Proton Therapy Center.
Chuck Merrifield took me to every part of the center and I had a chance to talk to some of the men undergoing Proton Therapy for Prostate cancer.
These men were enthusiastic and one man was anxious to see Proton expand to other applicable areas. I told him that many other body sites were treated and that protons were certain to expand.
Back to treatment – today marks the completion of three Chemotherapy Cycles out of five planned. (Click HERE to read about my new challenge, unrelated to my prostate cancer from years ago)
The Chemo seems to be the biggest challenge to my system and they are very careful to advise you about Pre and follow-up Dental care due to the IMRT impact.
The Doctors and Nurses and others involved in the process are outstanding. I believe that the MD Anderson Cancer Center’s recognition is well deserved and I am astounded by the mix of people being treated from all over the world.
Dr. Frank heads the Proton Therapy Center and he is preparing to expand the scope of this important cancer treatment. These University of Texas facilities are wonderful and they achieve miracles each day.
I’m personally happy that they are working with experience updated to 2011.
