    Radiation (External radiation ): Calendula cream applied twice daily from 2 weeks prior to radiation starting. Then applied 3 times a day plus aquaphor on nipples. Skin tanned but did not burn. No pain. Tingling “zings” at random times.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): Lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy. Aceteminophine and ibuprofen only used after surgery - did not feel any pain. Walked around house the next day and 2 days later able to go for 20 minute walk with teenage granddaughter.
