Just finished my 5 sessions of radiotherapy, feeling fine, so far no effects on my skin but they do say it can appear over a few weeks after.. Fingers crossed!
I know I've been really lucky to need so few sessions.
My one burning question is wondering if the therapy has had any effect on my heart & lungs as it's my left side. During the therapy I had to breath in and hold to give the rays space and to hopefully not affect those organs but how will I know if it has or not?
The other question is if it has affected them is there anything that can be done? Do they heal by themselves? Do they not heal at all?
Questions for my meeting with the oncologist in 4 to 6 weeks time but I'm too impatient to wait lol
many thanks xx
Hi, I would be interested in this too as I start my radiotherapy in 3 weeks. I was glad to read that yours went ok and it appears they are now choosing to do shorter cycles if possible x x x
