Hello I had 5 days of radiotherapy at the beginning of July 3 weeks later I developed a sore chest and my throat very dry it isn't as bad now but it is still there it is worse when I am anxious just wondering if anyone has experienced this
I have had a covid test and it is negative
I am sorry to hear you have this problem, I can not speak for all but I am wondering if a coincidence and it may not be related to RT as most I have heard have had 5days Rt for 5 weeks or 6, so for you to get these problems after just 5 days as I said maybe you picked up a chest infection. What has your team said? maybe worth chatting to them if you haven't already.
I’ve had the 5 day radiotherapy, I finished it early May.. I experienced quite a lot of discomfort down the centre of my Chest... uncomfortable when eating, but thankfully it has settled now.
Just had a sore throat for about 5 days and like you, I was sent for a Covid test that, was negative.
Hello thank you for your reply it has made me feel so much better
Take care and stay safe
They said it wouldn't be anything to do with the radiotherapy so sort of worried me that I had something really wrong ie with my lungs etc
Really hope all will be ok, we tend to worry and think too much, glad I made you feel a little better. Talk to your doctor get on the case because the quicker the better as you know. Probably nothing like as bad as you think it is but act fast to stop it getting worse, maybe doctor can give you something to clear it up.
