Joining this thread as im due to start radiotherapy next week as the last part of my treatment (having had chemo and then surgery). Feel i have had the least preparation about what to expect. Went for my planning CT after seeing the consultant and changing from 3 to 4 weeks of radiotherapy as initially told, and then had a phone call to say they wanted to extend the area being treated to covered (which was already my breast, axilla and neck) to include both chest bone nodes as well. Had to go back to have another CT with breath holding to replan things so i feel a bit stressed. No one has been able to say whether they saw something on the planning CT that is a reason to change the plan or whether the consultant has just decided to change his mind and be over cautious....... Anyway, im glad im a swimmer as i can imagine breath holding for 30 seconds might be hard for some people.
