Hi there Mary,
good you you have got rads out of the way but I'm sorry you're suffering a bit at the moment. I hope things improve for you. I've got off lightly so far but just had 12th rad with two more to go. Only now beginning to see slight reactions but not drastic yet!! i might regret saying that now. Take good care of yourself. Sue xx
take things as easy as you can, don't push yourself to recover any quicker than the body can manage. I've got M.E. The anaesthetic and 2 surgeries wiped me out but over a couple of weeks I picked up. I've had a week of rads and although I feel tired it's probably the travelling etc rather than the treatment so far. Sending love and hugs, you're not alone x
Hi, this is my first post. Had re-excision for DCIS high grade last Thursday 1 week after initial wide excision, thankfully Consultant chased results so second biopsy margins confirmed OK yesterday. Now to heal and told to expect radiotherapy in New Year. I did not react well to anaesthetic and surgery and feel like I have been hit by a bus this week due to my fibromyalgia, which is normally under control. Has anyone had adverse reaction to radiotherapy who has fibromyalgia ? Feeling very anxious , thinking stupid thoughts like what if the surgeon missed anything and it grows before radiotherapy starts.
