Re: Radiotherapy March 2020

Hi, good news you have a start date, try not to worry to much, hopefully all will go smoothly for you, also I couldn’t hold my breath so they have overcome this using a heart shield (don’t know if all units have them) maybe ask. Well done for starting your medication, unfortunately I haven’t yet, still getting my head around it. Only 4 more treatments to go for me, and hope yours goes quickly it’s surprising how you come to terms with it all.

ONE DAY AT AT TIME SWEET LADY. Well done for coming this far.

big hugs Tili

Re: Radiotherapy March 2020

Hi there, I am starting my radiotherapy next Wednesday the 11th March, 15 sessions ending 31st March.

I had a lumpectomy on the 16th Jan with clear margins and clear lymph nodes.

Re: Radiotherapy March 2020

   Hi Yorkshire50                                                                                                                                          I have my planning scan on the 5th, so I am feeling anxious as I have to take a deep breath and hold for 30seconds. I have been practicing. I am now taking my hormone treatment tablets, so far no side effects  I am taking them early evening. I cannot wait for all of this to end just want my life back. Hope everything goes well for you. Big Hugs Purple Lady X

Re: Radiotherapy March 2020

Hi Tilli and Chelle56,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences. 

I will have my planning scan on the 3rd and then be given my start date and appointment schedule. 

Well done both of you on completing 2 weeks of rads without too many issues. I hope this continues  for the rest of your treatment.

Good luck for the next week.

Re: Radiotherapy March 2020

Hi Yorkshire 50

Like Tilli I am on my 11th rad tomorrow and so far so good, just getting a bit tired now  😀

I don't know about your hospital but I was given AquaMax cream to use which I put on 2 or 3 times a day.

Don't use deodorant on the side that is to be and drink plenty of water

Hopefully you will be fine, if you have any questions ask your rads team, mine are also very supportive and check how I'm doing before each session.

Good Luck 😀

Re: Radiotherapy March 2020

Hello, I’m about to start my 11th treatment tomorrow (having 15) so far so good feeling a bit tired. Like you I was very worried almost didn’t go ahead...hopefully you won’t have any problems. Radiotherapy is not a ride in the park, the staff at the unit I’m attending are outstanding and very supportive.

wishing you lots of luck Tili 👍xx

Radiotherapy March 2020

Hi I am due to start rads in a couple of weeks. Slightly nervous. Would like to connect with others continuing or starting rads in March 2020. Any advice would be gratefully received.
