Burn under arm 4 weeks into radiation treatment
so I am getting a little worried here because I’m supposed to be getting radiation therapy to both my left and right breast. Now on the left side, they are radiating the nodes under my left arm and by my collarbone. I had a mastectomy on the left side back in January and immediate reconstruction with an LD flap. My right breast only had a very small cancer behind the nipple, and no affected nodes. I had one lymph node on the left side that had cancer cells. So what I don’t understand is four weeks into treatment with radiation, my left armpit isn’t even pink but my right armpit is so burnt it’s peeling. So I’m freaking out that they’ve been radiating the wrong side or is this something that just happens?
