Breast Cancer Survivor
I have just been diagnosed with DCIS after having a cyst removed containing Grade 0 carcinoma. I am awaiting an MRI this morning. I meet with a radiation oncologist this Friday. Can anyone tell me what radiation is like?
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Breast Cancer Support Group.
this is the first time that I am using this site so I will post this and then see how I can contact you.I just went through 6 weeks of radiation
I am new to the site too. I am about to undergo 6 weeks OF radiación as well. Does The Rad make you tired?
I went through 33 treatments after having Lx and SNB. I did fine, but my nipple is still swollen and almost white 2 months afterwards. Let me know if you want more info. Use lotion they recommend religiously!!
Thanks for the info!
I had 6 weeks of rads after mastectomy and it makes you very tired. I would pass out on my bed and not even realize it. Plan your day afterwards well and apply a lot of lotions afterwards.
