    chemo side effects/Rad ?

    I finished chemo 3 weeks ago & start radiation on monday. for 2 days my left eyelid is badly swollen over to my nose & then on my cheekbone it's all puffy. has anyone had this?
    also should I wear a bra to radiation or just a comfy sweatshirt?

      That sounds like a sinus infection. Since your immune system is still compromised from chemo, you need to have that checked out, especially if you have any accompanying fever.

      It does not matter if you wear a bra to your radiation treatments. In either case, you will strip down to the waist and put on one of their gowns for the treatment.
