    Other Care (Ambulance Taxi): I was picked up from my door, taken to the place for the appointment and delivered back home for all tests and daily while I was having rads. They were so nice, carried my bags etc and chatted if I wanted to. They are equipped for taking care of you if you have a problem and it helped so much as my husband and the dog stayed home and I could just relax and sit back.

    Other Care (Home care): Nurse came daily to dress burns . She was always cheerful and smiling, did a great job and came about 8am so it left me the whole day free.

    Radiation (External radiation ): The procedure itself was no problem and staff were very helpful. I did get severe burning which required treatment for some time afterwards. Still continued with daily life as normaly as possible

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): I had a surgeon in whom I had complete confidence. Recovery was OK. Some difficulties with an abscess and underarm discomfort. Managed to keep daily life normal. I am retired so no jpb which helped.
