Hey everyone, I just reached the half way mark for my radiation treatments! Doing pretty well, only had three days of fatigue so far, and some redness, but not bad. Aquaphor is my friend at this point. Three more weeks and I will be finished with this phase of my treatment. Tamoxifen is my next course. Am a little uneasy, but my oncologist says my body has given me three warning shots in the past three years and tamoxifen is very effective and since my tumor was 96% estrogen receptor positive--it should give me extra protection considering my family history. (Mom diagnozed at age 38, maternal grandmother, and cousin diagnozed at 47).
