Hi Everyone - thought I would share this, after being so worried, it did make me smile: haven't met my Oncologist, it's all in the phone, I've been thinking I must be in a really bad way as he said 45 days radiotherapy.   Anyway the radiotherapy dept rang today with loads of info including my start day on the 5th August, turns out it's 25 days, he was saying 45 gray which is the measurement of radiotherapy! 
gosh, did I laugh with relief !

On another point, as it's a 20 mile journey I booked my GKN kidney test on the same day as my scan plan appointment. Apparently the blood tests will clash so you can't have them in the same day.

take care everyone
