      In terms of side effects, they are no different from other radiation treatments.

      Went in for # 19 today - went through simulation and scans to get ready for the boost dose planning. Will be eight total - 6 more regular and 8 boost doses. So glad when this is over.

      My boost radiation treatments were the easiest. Just the scar was being treated. This was a huge break fr me since my worst burns were under my arm and that area started to recover once I started getting boost treatments to the scar area only.
