Had a catscan done this morning and was lined up and tattoed "below the navel". Has anyone had rads on hip and how bad is the burn? I have a belly (muffin top) and worried it will be quite uncomfortable in the crease by right hip. I also did day 3 of rads today. I'm lucky they get me in as soon as I get there, it hasn't been too much of a bother. I'm not looking forward to the burn and itch of it. Now I have 9 tattoos and will have 6 stickers to try and keep on and marked up like a road map.

    I just had my breast area
    I just had my breast area radiated Laurissa. Glad they are getting you in quickly. It does take longer to undress than to get the actual zapping. lol

    Why do some of you have the stickers and the markings? I guess I should ask my rads oncologist. I just had the 3 tattoos. Or, was it 4? I already forgot and they are barely visible now.

    Good luck to you Laurissa!

    I had rads on my hip for
    I had rads on my hip for pain but they only gave me 5 days of it which helped ALOT! I never had any burn or itch. I guess i wasnt on it long enough. Now when i did my rads on my breast after surgery, WOW!!!! I had like 30 treatments and burnt like hell. I never wanna do that again.
    Why are you getting rads on hip?
