Muscular skeletal side effects from radiation

I just started volunteering on here and I am not too good yet but I have breast cancer experience, and I care. I know that some fried muscles is not that uncommon with radiation. I am glad you reached out, and was scheduled into PT quickly. It sounds like you are a pretty active person. What kind of radiation, how many treatments did you have? Did you have any other side effects?

For me it was due to the lymph nodes being removed. They started drying up in my arm. Like a blood vessel or ligament. I’m not sure radiation was addtl cause. I will look that up. It was pain I hope never to have again!

I had whole breast with bursts over the tumor area. Probably did not help that my tumor was very close to my pectoralis muscle. My skin issues were
minimal. I have some areas of skin with loss of sensation. I did have nausea that started on last two days or radiation and lasted for 3 weeks. I also developed acid reflux. The latter has now waned but nausea continues which now maybe more related to chemo.
