    Side Effects (Fatigue (tiredness)): By the end of treatment I had absolutely no energy. I was still working and it was very hard getting through the day. I also had pain from the burns.

    Radiation (External radiation ): I had wanted the brachytherapy, which would only have lasted 5 days, but my cancer was too close to the surface of the breast and I wasn't a candidate.
    I had 28 full sessions and 5 boosters. First my skin got red and itchy and my nipple became very sore. Then I started burning more and had open sores which were quite painful. Finally, I felt completely wiped out.
