Strictly based on general sequence of treatments for this bleep, radiation is the last beating my sistes need to take in order to stay the hell away from the bleep for the next 50 yrs.
A few reminders are.
Radiation fatigue may be smaller than chemo fatigue but it could come harder and faster. many say protein drinks help.
Keep the radiated area cool. It could be aloe gel soaked gauze pad or cool tea soaked ones.
Those fancy machines are very finicky and could go out of commission suddenly. Try not to panic when that happens. I took it as a much needed break for me.
Lastly, I understand it is easy for me to say bc I went thru it. Any types of cancer treatment radiations come with side effects such as potential lung damage. One way to minimize it is to do breath hold exercise. With any stop watch. I recommend holding breath as long as possible. For many of you the more you practice, the longer you will be able to hold breath.
Please be gentle to yourself. Almost the end of the tunnel and you will be able to stay the bleep away for the next 50 yrs.
