Still a bit painful 7 months after end of radiotherapy

I sometimes get a pain in the treated area. It is nowhere as bad as before but it is a nuisance.It seems to be on a rib. Anyone else got the same?

Hi Tralala

Sorry that you havent had a response yet.  You may find it helpful to talk with one of our specialist on the free Helpline, 0808 800 6000, when they re-open on Monday morning.  Alternativley if you would like to post a question on the Ask Our Nurses area of the Forum where they can post a response to you online.

Just to reassure you, I finished rads in December and I still get the pain in the rib area in particular, I checked with my breast consultant last week and he confirmed it is almost certainly due to the rads and it can last a while albeit intermittent. 


Exercise does help but otherwise I guess its a case of perseverance!
