On to the next item of my Fight Breast Cancer To-Do List.
I finally received a call from my doctor's office about my radiation schedule. I start next week. On the 13th I'll have some x-rays done. On February 14th, I'll begin the actual radiation. What a way to spend Valentine's Day!
Unlike chemo, which lasted for a few hours, radiation only takes a few minutes. But it's every day (minus weekends). I will have 28 scheduled appointments.
The side effects include mainly skin irritation...like a sunburn...and fatigue. For some, their skin blisters, but my doctor assured me that they wouldn't let that happen.
So, we'll see.
