I am a teacher and I started my rads in August during the holidays. I booked them all for immediately after lunch (less chance of being too delayed!) and went to work in the morning. I then went straight to the hospital and then to school to collect my son. I was rehearsing a show at the time and so two nights a week I went out in the evening as well. Ok, yes I was totally knackered by the end but there was a part of me that would not be beaten and a part of me that was feelin quite 'high' knowing that it was the final step. However we deal with it we mustn't forget this is the final stage and that is fantastic.
My journey started in June and I have gone full steam ever since. I know I need to start taking it easier as I am not kind enough to myself, but this final stage is a walk in the park. I creamed up twice a day from the week before therapy started, and I went slightly pink in the third week. The itching continued for 10 days after the last session and then subsided exactly on cue, It was exactly what I was told would happen. The cream I used came from the hospital and was called Aqua Max. It worked a treat! I resisted scratching and used aloe vera gel from the fridge if I really felt I needed to scratch. It sounds like a real pantomime but it is for such a short time if you consider everything else we have gone through.
Good luck with your rads - end of chapter just ahead!
