      Moonchick.. I just finished radiation this week. 28 rounds. Had no issues until last weekend.. with only one more to go this past Monday. All of a sudden, I'm blistering and in lots of pain. 2nd and 3rd degree burns.. near my collar bone it looks like someone laid a hot iron on me. Was yours this bad? How long did it take to heal? I know this is cumulative but this was terrible the way it all became present at the end. I'd love to share experience if you feel like.

    Side Effects (Thinking problems): The side effects were many and very trying for someone that was fairly healthy up to this point. I had never realy been sick so I felt blindsided by my body!

    Drug or Chemo Therapy: Drugs and Chemo were taxing to put it mildly. They made me sicker the longer I took them. The daily weakness was very hard to deal with.

    Procedure or Surgery: I think I expected to not be effected by a double mastectomy but that was untrue. I felt ugly and deformed without breasts.
