I finish my 15 radiotherapy fractions tomorrow, post a lumpectomy in November. it has gone well and am only now just getting sore. Tiredness has been a problem, though having a little nap most afternoons has sometimes helped. The doctor informs me this next week will be the worst for the skin and how I may feel.
I have used E45 lotion night and morning and it has helped the itching.
I have had a problem getting bras that feel comfortable as they seem to upset the scar from where the nodes were excised. Sports bras as suggested haven’t helped.
I wish I had found this forum before as it is helpful seeing other people’s posts, it seems vest bras are the way to go but I think it probably a little late in treatment for me to get them now.
I have been lucky as I was one of the 50% of ladies over 70 years of age (I am 71) that was called back for mammogram and so my cancer was found early. It is a scary experience but I have been impressed by everyone I have been cared by.
All luck to everyone on this forum it has been good to read your posts.
