External radiation - CrazyBlessed1

Radiation Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (8 Experiences)

Radiation itself was not painful but having it right after my surgery proved to be hard. The first treatment for me was unbearable to keep my arms over my head that long. They had to stop and come back later - on drugs! After the first one it was fine and I came to love my team. After 6 weeks of 5 days a week it was hard to leave them behind. That sounds crazy but there is a certain comfort in the treatement process that leaves you hanging out there on your own when you're done.
