   Welcome to the July Radiotherapy Discussion  

This is a place where you can ask for advice, give and/or receive support and just query anything involving BC radiotherapy.

A couple of quick tips, if you are using a car to your radiotherapy appointments daily, ask if your hospital offers free or discounted parking for people going through treatment - Most do.

For more tips, here's our Radiotherapy Tips Page and other replies you may find useful.

External Beam Radiotherapy information link.

Here's also a link from the Macmillan Information pages, and this helpful video that some of you may want to have a look at.
This is a link to The June Radiotherapy Chat if you need to backtrack - It will be locked shortly for replies.

If you have any questions, just holler - someone will soon reply with some support or advice.
Keep using the creams post rads as you will still be 'cooking' for a couple of weeks.

If you are having the 5 daily sessions of FF Radiotherapy regime - This image may help ?

Take care - You're almost there,  G n' J

I finished my 5 days worth of rads on 30th June, apart from the initial tiredness I'm currently free of any other sided effects though I know they can present still.  I have heard that 5 x RT seems to present fewer side effects, here's hoping.  

Ps I also got to ring the bell after my 5th session :-)
