After reading a few recent posts, that topic is one of the questions I was asking myself.
For starters, I am thinking that whatever position one ends up in for treatment ( and I mean the physical positioning of the body), I am thinking it's most likely the best that the docs have for their job, whether it's open surgery or some form of radiation....
Then, I think, ok, yes, but open surgery can mean hours for the patient. (as radiation is so much less in time of course).
It would appear to me that some Aners have some symptoms that are newly experienced post treatment and that they perhaps have a direct bearing on the position (plus subesquent mobility/pain) that their body was positioned during their op.
I'm all for helpful things for them while lying there for so long.
I think the question is (for me) what is the best lying down position anyway for a long (maybe 5-8-15 hr) operation? (apart from specific angles depending on whether it's trans lab or mid fossa or etc.......)...
can't help it.... I get curious about things
am all for good post treatment experiences.....
