Hi @jimmy72,

Welcome to this site. I have no information about what you're going to go thru, but I'd just like to wish you the best of luck. My only advice is to read as much as you can on what the treatment involves, write down any questions you have that arise from your research so you can ask & put your mind at rest.
All the best to you.
Cheers

Budgie
