Hi. I've been reading and everyone seems so nice. I'm having problems with a long term side effect from radiation that was done 7 months ago. I developed "radiation Pneumonitis" in my right lung where radiation was done for breast cancer. I got it around Christmas and it is better but not gone. So I can't have the rest of my reconstruction done yet and I really don't feel great and I am afraid. Did any of you have this or any long-term effects from radiation?
And I am on Femara and having a lot of arthritis pain in my hands and shoulders. I guess I'm asking too much at one time and I'm sorry. I was really on the mend before the "pneumonitis" and want to get back there.
