Re: All clear

As Skinny has said, the tiredness really kicks in after the rads so bear that in mind when planning a holiday.

 

Also if you start on 20th then there will be a bank holiday during your rads so you won't be going for rads then and I think the minimum is 15 rads so it could run well into September before you finish.

 

Have you had a planning meeting yet?  I started rads 2 weeks after planning.

 

All the best,

Re: All clear

Do you have a Breast Care Nurse Team you could ring to find out?

 

You will need to check with someone in your hospital team about how many radiotherapy sessions you will need and with what frequency.  It varies a lot on a case by case basis and any answers on here will be speculation.

 

Is your 20 August appointment for planning the treatment?  What's the waiting time to actually start radiotherapy in the hopsital where you're being treated?

 

If you're planning a holiday in early September you might still be having radiotherpay then.  You might like to also consider that tiredness is a common side effect of radiotherapy  and plan the type of holiday around that fact. 

 

Best wishes.

Re: All clear

Hi Toulula

 

Glad to hear things are going well.

 

I had 15 rads after my WLE and SNB op.

 

You will have a planning appointment for your rads before you start rads.  I had a scan with that appointment and tatoos done

Re: All clear

Hi Toulula, I had 15 sessions, some people have a booster on top of that, and others 25 etc. It depends on the equipment at a particular hospital to a certain extent. Hugs, Jo x

Re: All clear

I had 25 daily sessions but some people just get 15 or 20 - ie 3 or 4 weeks. The actual rads takes only minutes - the travelling to and from the hospital takes it out of you though, especially if you are working too. You tend to go at the same time each day and can request morning or afternoon session, if you wanted to say work in the morning and go to hospital in the afternoon.

Hope all goes well - you are nearly there

Re: All clear

Great news Toulula!

I'm sure that crying is perfectly normal (I'm finding myself doing an extraordinary amount of that at the moment too) xx

Re: All clear

What good news! It's bound to be an emotional time, there were probably awful thoughts going round in your head around the appointment news beforehand. Be kind to yourself while it all calms down.

 

Gentle hugs, Jo x

Re: All clear

I think that sounds very normal. Even if you get an all clear you have still been through an emotional roller-coaster.

Re: All clear

Pleased to hear your good news! You can't instantly switch from desperately worried to OK(ish) without a reaction, the tears are relief from the tension.
