Hi. I am new to these boards even though I was diagnosed a year ago. Had a masectomy in May. Finished chemo in July and radiation 4 days ago. Have suddenly developed angry red skin over the radiation area which I don't really have during treatment. Am treating it with Biofine but am not sure if this is indicative of a problem. Am waiting to speak to the doctortomorrow. Due to another medical condition I have, am currently on immuno-suppressants and so am at risk for infection. I am very frightened by everything that has been/is going on. My husband is absolutely no help. He is not a supportive person by nature. I have been trying to go it alone but now find I can't anymore. Was hoping to find some support on one of these boards. Thanks for any help you can give.
