I just finished my last radiation treatment today! And when I say I'm "well done", I mean it! Ha. The whole breast phase wasn't too bad and began healing immediately afterward. The "boost" phase, though, has left me quite red and feeling burned but I feel confident that it too will begin to heal quickly.
It's such a joy to have all my treatment behind me! At the outset of the radiation, seven and 1/2 weeks seemed such a long, long time...every single weekday and an hour's drive, roundtrip. Yet, it seems to have passed quickly. Now, I'm looking forward to regaining my pre bc physical strength and expanding upon my increased emotional and spiritual strength. The down side notwithstanding, bc does offer some tremendous lessons for living and I feel fortunate to have learned some of them.
Aside from check ups, I will see my gyn in
Love, light and laughter,
