Radiotherapy March 2020

Hi I am due to start rads in a couple of weeks. Slightly nervous. Would like to connect with others continuing or starting rads in March 2020. Any advice would be gratefully received.

Hello, I’m about to start my 11th treatment tomorrow (having 15) so far so good feeling a bit tired. Like you I was very worried almost didn’t go ahead…hopefully you won’t have any problems. Radiotherapy is not a ride in the park, the staff at the unit I’m attending are outstanding and very supportive.

wishing you lots of luck Tili ?xx

Hi Yorkshire 50

Like Tilli I am on my 11th rad tomorrow and so far so good, just getting a bit tired now  ?

I don’t know about your hospital but I was given AquaMax cream to use which I put on 2 or 3 times a day.

Don’t use deodorant on the side that is to be and drink plenty of water

Hopefully you will be fine, if you have any questions ask your rads team, mine are also very supportive and check how I’m doing before each session.

Good Luck ?

Hi there, I am starting my radiotherapy next Wednesday the 11th March, 15 sessions ending 31st March.

I had a lumpectomy on the 16th Jan with clear margins and clear lymph nodes.
