Glad your first day went ok. I like your attitude, you have to keep positive dont you. I had my second rads this morning. Again went fine. what cream are you using?
hope all goes well for you tomorrow. have had two rad sessions now. No probs everyone really friendly ,takes more time setting the machine up than anything else. All the best
thanks for your message hope your going on well. Rads went well day one and two. glad the first couple are over, always easier when you know what to expect.
Are you all moisturising with E45 lotion? I heard about this online and told my oncologist I'm doing it and she said good, it'll help. Rads start 25th June but still no appointment for the planning session.
It's now 3 and a half weeks since I had my mastectomy/axillary node clearance. Going to hospital today to have my seroma aspirated for the second time. Going to ask what happens if seroma is still building up when rads start, as I have been told there must be no fluid under the scar for rads.
Buzz- i start mine on 5th june too- good luck with yours:-) i didn't have itchy stickers, just three tatoos-
hope today went ok for you others out there-
I didn't think they will draw on me- so thanks for heads up:-)
wishing us all well XXX
good luck on your first day. I start rads on june 26th - planning session this thursday so look forward to any advice. Hope all goes well for you.
Start my first radiotherapy session today, a bit nervous, but otherwise ok. Just be glad to start and get it all over with. Fuinny isnt it how its the little things that worry you, like what to wear, normally I wouldnt be concerned at all.
I have found the best way through is to take a day at a time, and try not to worry about tomorrow, easier said than done sometimes.
Wishing all you ladies who are starting rads this month the best. Hope all goes well for you. Take it easy
i'm sorry to hear that too, Buzz. Some of the women who had radiotherapy with me last time around had long round trips too. They became very tired as treatment went on, so be extra kind to yourself - put your feet up wherever and whenevr, treat yourself to relaing baths and early nights if you feel you need them - 'you' time is a good help.
I had 3 tatoos done, they are only the size of a pinhead but they draw on me daily with felt pen.
Good luck with starting your rads, sorry to hear you have a long journey daily.
Sorry to hear your rads have been delayed and you are playing the waiting game.
Good to hear you have a holiday to look forward to though
I'm sorry to hear your treatment has been delayed. It must be very disappointing for you to have to wait. The waiting seems to be the hardest thing. Try to enjoy your holiday in July.

I had my oncologist appointment yesterday so thought I would be joining you ladies and starting rt in June. Was so not expecting what happened next. The onc said she wants to hold off on rt and instead I am being referred for genetic testing. I was so hoping this would all be behind me by July and now everything has been turned on its head again. I guess I should have learned by now to expect the unexpected.
I got my appointment list for radiotherapy today. I start on June 25th. Don't have an appointment for the setting up session yet though. lol
I'm hoping to start rads in June. Been to see my oncologist yesterday to talk it through and sign the consent form. Now waiting for the setting up session appointment.
I had neo-adjuvant FEC-T chemo from December to early April, and a full mastectomy and axillary clearance on 9th May. Now back to normal and raring to move on to radiotherapy, then Tamoxifen.
My advice would be make sure you put lots of aqueous cream on your boob before you start treatment. I finished 15 sessions of Radiotherapy on 25th April. I had a 50 mile round trip but didnt feel too tired. Just take it easy and hope all goes well for you all. As Kathy said any advice you need just ask, someone will have the answer. Keep posting to let us know how you are getting on.
Good luck to all of you for when you start your radiotherapy. I finished 20 sessions last week. Radiotherapy is very doable. Going to the hospital every day can become tiring, especially if you have to travel a long distance. If you need to ask any questions there are lots of us here who've been there so ask away.
Take care and hope all goes well.
