Radiation treatment at the OU Health & Science in OKC

Hi everyone! I have dupuytrens in both hands and ledderhose in both feet and I have been to many doctors and all they can tell me is to come back when I can no longer lay my hand flat! Now, why in the hell would I wait til that happens, I mean really! The other doctor wanted to schedule me for surgery on my foot................NOT!!! Not one of them ever mentioned having radiation treatment and I found that to be rather odd don't you? So I decided to go with the radiation treatments and for the first time I feel there is light at the end of this tunnel! Dr. Herman is awesome along with his staff, I can't say enough about them. I live in Dallas and it's not offered there and all week I have been asked why OKC and not Dallas? Even Dr. Herman said he didn't understand why there were not more doctors doing this. It's painless and only takes about 25-30 min max and then I'm good to go and do whatever I want. I have asked a load of questions such as do you see a lot of this and they say yes, but it's after the person has already been cut on and the disease has come back. That was why I decided to go this route first! And as I said before I have a great positive outlook on this and it's days are numbered!!

Their protocol is:
Monday--1 treatment
Tuesday--2 treatments, morning and afternoon
Wednesday--1 treatments
Thursday--2 treatments, morning and afternoon
Friday--1 treatment

I think they use around 25 greys for dosage...not sure exactly.

As per my opinion you should go to the surgeon clinic who can give you right advice for your illness. You should don't waste your time and go with surgeon advice because it can make big injury after sometimes.
