Hi I had radiotherapy in January left breast stage 2 and 23 lymph nodes removed., I'm still feeling exhausted, left breast swollen and get pains and burning sensation? Has anyone one else had these symptoms? I just don't have the get up and go every thing is such an effort. I'm on letrozole. Also in menopause not allowed HRT.

Thank you if any one can shed any light on this for me x

  • Hi  

    I'm sorry to read how you're feeling after finishing radiotherapy. I count myself very fortunate that, other than a slight rash, I didn't suffer any side effects but I know that lots of people do.

    As you know the online community is divided up into different support groups and I can see that you've found and joined the breast cancer group. I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you also post there as you'll then connect directly with others who have had radiotherapy for breast cancer.

    It would be great if you could pop something about your diagnosis and treatment so far into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
