    Celebration (Finished treatment): 16 days of radiation after requiring more than 2 OTC ibuprofen tabs and script written after much pain on measuring day that I informed the doctor of my pain. She did my treatment and set up markings the same dqy and session. 2nd day I was in pain and had to get up so a script was written and I had to add another day onto my treatment length to meet my 16 day cycle.
    4/17/19 Treatment completed!!!

      That's great. I remember when I finished radiation in 2007. I don't remember being in a lot of pain, but the burns sure hurt & looked bad. I had an ointment & it worked. I still have scars.

    Radiation (External radiation ): I decided to forego chemo and go to radiation (16 treatments) as I was already having mobility issues, edema, falling, weight gain, unable to lie down flat on my back. I joined a gym to aid my ability to PT water therapy. Walking with a cane and/violator with a seat. I was told later that I could not get into the chlorinated water with the external radiation 'irritations' which were real bad sunburn. Toward the end if treatments I had a respiratory reaction and went to my plan emergency room. 5 days of prednisone caused weight gain. I was tired as well and had referrals for other side effects during a high pollen period of the year. On burn cream 3x/day. On to HRT as IIA estrogen + HER2 -. Bone density scan.
