Shannen Doherty Over Radiation Treatment
In one of her recent Instagram post, the actress shows herself sitting in her doctor’s office.
First day of radiation treatment. I look like I'm about to make a run for it which is accurate. Radiation is frightening to me. Something about not being able to see the laser, see the treatment and having this machine moving around you just scares me. I'm sure I'll get used to it but right now…. I hate it. #radiation #radiationmondaysucks #stillfightinglikeagirl
In another Instagram post, the actress talks about her wonderful team of doctors and nurse who are there to take care of her. And with their support, she has managed to move on. She underwent the chemotherapy sessions some time back.
Sometimes it seems like chemo will never end. Sometimes you wonder if you have the courage to face cancer and all that comes with it. Dig deep. The courage, strength and tenacity is there inside us all. This is my crew……Dr Lawrence Piro, nurse Dawn and the wonderful Joyce. These 3 got me thru chemo. Hope to never see them in the chemo room again!!! Onward to radiation. #fightlikeagirl #movingforward
