Radiation - Dianne04

Radiation Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on October 9, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

I did have radiation on both sides. The first few treatments were easy, then fatigue set in though I kept working full time. I did have some burning and headaches. Toward the end, the machine broke while I was on the table. I was burned and very sick, with nausea and excrutiating headaches. They were unable to do the last five treatments, but I got a lovely certificate that I had "graduated!" My white blood cell count has never recovered. Basically, I have no immune system. I wash my hands often!
