@Morrigan - I had my first treatment yesterday (8/3) and second in the middle of the storm this afternoon! I'm only getting 15 sessions because they are doing a 'supplemental' boost - which means my extra week of boost will occur at the same time as my last week of treatment...so I'll take it. :)
I was shocked that I actually had a minor amount of discomfort after the first treatment, and slightly more today. It's not painful yet - but I can feel the tenderness, especially around my nipple, and my inner chest area is warm like I got too much sun. Meeting with my RO tomorrow and will see what she thinks.
I've been surprised how emotional and scared the radiation process has made me, but I've loved reading the posts from others during RADS. It's made me feel more normal and slightly less stressed - so I thought I'd turn up and share my experience too.
Good luck with your treatment next week!
