Radiation

My surgeon and oncologist recommended chemo, radiation and 5 years of hormonal therapy. I was done with chemo 2 months ago and radiation is next, but I decided not to take it right away because I just want to feel normal again. Chemo was just too much for me. It made me disabled for months. The oncologist told me that if I won’t get the radiation it might cause my death! This really scared me. I am now worried every minute and I feel like giving up again. Is there anyone there who has the same experience and survived breast cancer without the radiation therapy? Please help!

Honey, I did radiation after 6 months of chemo and a mastectomy. If you made it through chemo you will find radiation a piece of cake. Yes, you get tired from having it everyday, but in the long run it is worth it. Good luck, Donna

Hi! Just go ahead and do the radiation...it's only a pain cause you have to go M-F...it doesn't hurt...you just get a little sunburn towards the end...no other side effects in my case...hang in there
