Re: July Radiotherapy Anyone?

Hi, 22 to go now!!! Yes everyone was so lovely. Thank you for all your messages. That means a lot. I have made myself an "advent" type calendar and filled it with sweets. It's in the shape of a pink ribbon and I love it. Haven't outgrown arts and crafts yet.
This can't already be, my boob is totally hot! That's in my head right?! Wondering if it is because it took us a while to squiggle me in to position and my op arm just aches and it's making my right side hot. Anyway not complaining, just intrigued.
More later fellow July people. Sleep well xxx

Re: July Radiotherapy Anyone?

Hi, I just finished 15 sessions.

 

Have had some issues but finding some great ideas for creams, gels, cooling etc here.

 

So can share what working for me.

Re: July Radiotherapy Anyone?

Mini Mad - how's your boob after all the rads? How are you feeling?  x

MandR

Re: July Radiotherapy Anyone?

I don't have to travel too far for rads but it's at the hospital in a town I don't know so well so it seems a bit daunting at the moment.  I guess I'll know it better soon!  

Sandra, yes look at it as a positive thing - a 'present' that will make sure you stay well.  

Other half has just bought me a fitbit because I am determined to sort my life out 😉 and get fitter and healthier.

Lots of love xxx
