Restarting radiation

I am feeling so much better today than when I came home from the hospital some rest and good food has really helped. I am starting radiation again tomorrow and I am a little anxious as to what side effects I will get but hopefully it won't be any where as bad as the chemo! I had 2 weeks of treatment and missed 2 weeks so am hoping I will only need 3 more weeks. Thanks for the replies I will keep you posted.

I'm so glad you are doing better and I hope tomorrow you will get back on track so you can get through treatment. Just take it one day at a time and soon you'll have it done! Please keep us posted. Sending you a hug and positive vibes!

I had two weeks of treatment then had to take a break. So far, it has only been four days (plus the week end), but I go for a blood test in the morning. If my white count is back up, then it's back to the radiation. Best of luck to you--hope it goes better this time for us both.

So glad you're feeling better! I missed about a week of radiation due to hospitalization. It was nice to have a break. Almost didn't finish the last 5 radiation treatments but I did. Rest and good food does help! All the best to you!

So glad the short break did you well. I never missed radiation, but did a little chemo when in the hospital. Some of us just need to go that route...hoping all is good from now on! As always, all in my prayers.

Good to hear you are back on track. Just take one treatment at a time. You and everyone of this site are in my daily prayers. ~Carol

I, too, had to take a break about the 4th, maybe 5th week of treatment, which I welcomed. Blood counts were too low. That rest was EXACTLY what I needed in order to continue through the remainder of treatment. I actually hadn't realized how bad I felt during that time (weak, tired) until I began feeling good again. Many blessings to you as you continue on.
