Dear Friends and Family,
I have completed 19 rounds of radiation and have one more treatment to go! I am so excited that my treatment will soon be ending! In my opinion, radiation feels like the forgotten part of treatment since you usually hear so much more about the side effects from chemo. Do not get me wrong, chemo was difficult, but radiation is difficult also. It is a big commitment going to treatments everyday. I am fortunate that I get my treatments out of the way and complete them first thing in the morning. My skin in the radiated area is red and sore. I also have itchy red bumps on my chest. I moisturize with Aquaphor after treatment and when I go to bed.
