Like you, I tolerated rads well & apart from tingling & warmth, redness & slight soreness underneath the breast did not really occur until well into the second half of 15 fractions. I think the dose is standard for 15, but obviously treatment plans vary. Interestingly, the irradiated boob can still feel warmer 5 months later.
Does anyone know if we all get different doses or if we all get the same? I only ask because I have been chatting to a woman I befriended (bumping into each other every day and got talking) and she is having 15 rads and no boosts while I am having 15 rads plus 8 boosts. We started on the same day and after 7 she is bright red and sore. I have no colour change or soreness whatsoever. So is she getting a higher dose in a shorter time? Do I have more tolerant skin or am I getting a weaker dose for longer?
I am using the cream they gave us and she said she is too. I am worried that mine is not working!
