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.

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.

Just giving this a 'bump' there must be some here having Rads at the moment - even if only 5 days worth ?

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 :-)
