Has anyone out there had just one week of radiation therapy for breast cancer rather than the normal 6 to 8 weeks of therapy ?

    I had 4 weeks and was told that was a small amount compared to others but it probably depends on multiple factors. Ask the doctor

    I had radiation once a day for 4 weeks. I have a local recurrence and was told there is a possibility that I can be treated this time twice a day for 2-3 days instead. I’m not sure if it will be harder on my body or not though. I had fatigue the first time.
