External radiation - BubblyBetty

Radiation Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on January 25, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

I am in my 19th day of radiation (30 days total). This is a breeze after chemotherapy! I've been very lucky to not have major side effects. My skin is starting to "sun tan" but is not peeling. I had a couple of weeks where my breast was very tender, but it seems fine now. I know that everyone experiences something different and that I have been very fortunate. My oncologist says I am doing great as well as the radiologist. Perhaps I have a very strong body, but I really think my good fortune is due to great support from my husband and friends, and a positive attitude. When I was diagnosed, I did not pray to be cured, or get angry. I prayed for strength to handle whatever was coming my way and I truly believe my prayers were answered.
