I was just wondering if anyone else has had mamosite radiation?
No...but I did go twice a day for 22 days instead of 44 days. That meant I did get a larger daily dose of radiation than those who go daily. My skin held up pretty well, rash toward the end, and some brown peeling dead skin. But I never had any open seeping burns.
If you are considering mammosite, I would just say do your research and listen to your docs. Be sure and ask about any long term effects there might be.
I hope this helps.
I have all ready had the radiation from April 19 thru April 25th. It did make me fatigued, mammosite was no more uncomfortable than a bladder catheter. Just a little pulling and tugging. I have had a little redness and peeling nothing major. Saw Radiologist again on May 20th and he said everything was healing up nicely. Waiting on oncotype test to see if I will need chemo right now. Glad you did well with your RAD treatments. My daughter had 53 RAD treatments for Hodgkins and it was real hard on her.
