    Side Effects (Fatigue (tiredness)): I've never felt like this before. I know exhaustion & generally tired but this feeling, which is hard to describe, hit me like a ton of bricks.

    Radiation (External radiation ): "They" say you do not feel fatigue until about 2 weeks. After the 5 treatments, it knocked me for a loop. I will say I think it may be in part to my having a surgery on the same arm, 6 mos. later, I broke same arm so my system is somewhat compromised.

    Procedure or Surgery (Axillary Lymph Node Dissection): I fouind this much more uncomfortable than the lumpectomy. Sacs of fluid had to be removed 3 times. It is right in the bra strap area.
