Radiation burns healed ridiculously fast



It is three weeks since my last radiation session, and now there is no sign at all of the ghastly sunburns I had. Originally is was almost a purple red, stretching across the breast into my armpit.

Is this typical? Or is jojoba oil infused with magical healing properties? I've been buttering myself with that stuff.

Seriously: were it not for a funky little dent left from surgery, you would hardly know I had any surgery at this point.

    Results are different for everyone. Some burn, some don't, some heal fast.

    Jewelweed - I was amazed how I healed so quickly, and nice. I was beyond miserable for weeks and all of a sudden at the two week mark after my last session, I started healing. Never did I think I'd heal so well after the horrifying burn I endured.

    So happy that you healed fast!

    Same here! After surgery then radiation I could hear to even look at my breasts. It was total wreckage.
