Thanks to those who responded to my initial message on hearing from those who had lumpectomy and radiation. I am still interested in the long term effects (3,5 years) of radiation on the heart and lungs.

Not even the doctors are concerned about the affects. I think we all must realize what happens to one doesn't always happen to another. You could be the lucky one and avoid many of the side affects. Knowing all I did didn't stop me from having the treatments and YES I had many of them. I am alive and breathing that is truly all that really matters to me.

Hi, don't know the long term effects on radiation, but my Radiation onc. explained the machine to me, it is 3 dimentional, computerized, and a program is set up for the exact area that needs the radiation, less chance of burning lungs and other organs. I finished Rads in may, doing fine, I am on chemo now. Take care...Emmi
