    Radiation (External radiation ): Just started right breast radiation on Nov 6th. I should finish on Dec 5th and will update at that time. For these first 4 days, it has been painless but I have just started. The worst thing, is just going in everyday.

    ok, update I have completed my radiation of 4 weeks a little over a month ago. I am prob one of the odd balls here that actually disliked radiation more than chemo. I seemed to dread the every day routine of radiation and had a mental problem with staying still. I wanted to move and that is a big no-no. Plus, using that thick aquaphor everyday was a hassle with clothing and wearing certain clothing. It was burned and had to use aquaphor for a full 4 weeks afterwards, not just two weeks that the doctor said would be it. I am now healed and it's all OK, but for me personally, the chemo was easier than I thought it would be and the radiation was harder. I never thought I would be saying that.
