Hi There thanks for letting me knw how you were with radiotherapy. If I have a bit of a picture then I am not so scared when things are thrown at you. I have been told today by the BCN that it was 3 weeks (15 sessions) of radiotherapy another bit I heard differently not taking it all in but she said I will get a treatment plan on 30th June when I get results and radiotherapy starts 6-8 weeks after surgery. I tld my Son I would be out of bounds for about 4 weeks and then back to childminding! BCN says no always the way we plan!! I will let you know howI get on. Take care X
Hi there thanks so much for your time. I understand Rads more now - will add it to my "PINK Dictionary". I have decided (today at least) that I have read enough to fry my brain and no more clear simple understanding of what I actually have got or am going to have! I am leaving it all alone and just going for wound check on 23rd and then Results 30th June. - or - should I keep ploughing through all the papers they give you and read up on it, but not being sure what I have until results day then not sure i am reading right thing?? Copy of GP letter to me states Grade 2 invasive cancer with high level DCIS ??? and would have to have 5 daily sessions of radiotherapy, do they do more if you need it other people seem to have had a lot of sessions?
I am worried about the after effects like you say fatigue peaked after treatment stopped. I childmind my 21month old grandson 2 days a week and am wondering if I will have him and think I am ok and then something else like "fatigue" crops up and I have to let them down again. No-one can say a set period of time needed to recover from this I have said I should be ok to have him in 4 weeks from Surgery?? I am so in the dark. thanks again take care whatever you do X
Hi everyone hwat is "rads" is that radiotherapy? this is a total new language on here for me.
Can anyone tell me what to expect when I have to have radiotherapy. I had my lumpectomy and lymph nodes surgery on Wednesday now I have all that over and done with I was wondering about the next step. I have to see specialist on 23rd for results from surgery and then have been told I will have to have 5 days radiotherapy at the moment.
I feel ok from surgery 3rd day. 1st day was quite sore, still have the drain hopefully it will be gone Friday. Have had family today but feel so tired now and I have only been chatting must be the medication in my body also I have not slept through since before my Surgery.
Like I say I am wondering about the next stage now. take care everyone.
Ladies, still waiting to start rads but like you I never felt the lump that appeared as if by magic when I had my v first mammogram
still healing from surgery, and seeing surgeon tomorrow
