Re: Effects of Radiotherapy

Hi

Although I'm having the full 15 I started getting tightness in the area being zapped about a third of the way through so suspect comparable to yours.

I would mention it to the radiologists you'll be seeing in your treatment.  Mine ask every day if everything is ok.

Effects of Radiotherapy

Hello

Just had my first session of Radiotherapy to breast today ..am on the Fast-forward 5 days course instead of 3 weeks.

My breast feels tighter ..is it normal to start feeling effect so soon, is it normal to feel tightness?

I was informed of potential shoulder stiffness but not breast tightness.

I am doing all exercises as instructed and applying E45 cream.

Really appreciates any help and advice.
