18 August - Starting treatment

First day of actual treatment. Nothing much to report.

Took the temozolomide tablets. Didn't feel nauseous.

Had the first dose of radiotherapy. Didn't feel any pain. Lay there on the bed, under the mask, while the X-ray machine whirred around my head. Nearly dozed off.

The worst thing about it was having to miss lunch to maintain an empty stomach two hours either side of taking the temozolomide.
