Radiation causing lung damage
I was treated for her2+ breast cancer. Started May 2022: Chemo, surgery, radiation, kadcyla. After round 8 of kadcyla, started having issues with my lungs. Radiation pneumonitis March of 23, the 2 rounds of kadcyla, then organizing pneumonia in July. Was put on prednisone both times, Sept Covid positive which peas to pneumonia on the same side of radiation. Plan is to put me on prednisone for longer period. By now I’m exhausted. I’m supposed to have my reconstructive surgery 10/10 for implants and fat grafting. I’m debating whether I should delay it now even though pulmonologist said I should be ok.
I’m worried about my lungs and if this is going to be a cycle for me now. Anyone been thru something similar?
