Hi, I was diagnosed on Christmas eve, I have my pre op on 7th Jan and have been told I will have radiotherapy. What side effects could I be in for?

  • Hi Sunsetjaneway,

    That’s rotten luck and especially tough timing! You’re probably better off asking the Breast Cancer group, a lot of their members go through what’s in front of you. If nobody in this group steps up, and if it’s any help, I finish a 30 fraction programme on my thigh next week. A bit of fatigue, some soreness, tiredness and a general feeling of low grade flu are what I’ve experienced. Nothing scary at all. And painless. You’ll be absolutely fine, I’m sure. Good luck!!
