Chemo, radiation...why....if u r cancer free

Hi. Quick intro. My name is Kevin and I'd like to thank whoever is running this site. I apologize in advance if I'm not showing proper ettiquite.  I'm new to this. The following has all transpired in the last 4 months and it's been a whirlwind as I'm sure y'all know. My girlfriend,  the girl of my dreams, was diagnosed w breast cancer. Fortunately,  she only had to go through a lumpectomy.  They got it all. Hell yeah....right? Initially, they only recommended radiation as treatment. She was reserved about that. Now, after they reviewed her tumor they removed.

My father has been diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Nasal Cavity... 

This past Wednesday, he had surgery to remove the cancer. In doing so, the doctors removed his nose along with bone in his nose area

Radiation Proctitis

Just wondering what treatments worked for those of you who ended up with Radiation Proctitis after cancer treatment.  Aside from HBO, what treatments have cleared it or at least lessened the bleeding?

Breast pain after lumpectomy

Hello, friends

i have been on the BC board, but thought almost a year out of treatment this may be a good move for me.  I had neoadjuvant chemo, a partial, then 25 rounds of rads.  Now, 10 months out of treatment I am experiencing neuropathy in my fingers and feet and pain in my affected breast.  Surgeon said it is probably scar tissue, but my sensitivity to touch has increased.  I am seeing my onco and surgeon in about a month.  Should I mention these, or would my doctors just think I am imagining?

Radiation induced pain

Hi Anyone!  I have had pelvic bone X-rays last June and have been suffering with chronic pelvic, hip, groin and back pain.  I have had an MRI of spine and hips - nothing to show why I have this pain. Taken all sorts of medication- none help. Oncologist thinks it's iin my head! WRONG!   Can anyone comment. Hurts when I walk, getting up from a sitting position and out of a car.  THANKS.

Has anyone had hipocampal sparing whole brain radiation?

Hi everyone,
I have HER2 positive breast cancer with many brain metastases.  I've had Gamma Knife treatment in the past but new lesions keep developing so now I have been offered hippocampal sparing whole brain radiation as my only treatment option.  From reading all the posts about whole brain radiation, I am very reluctant to go ahead with this procedure, hippocampal sparing or not.    I currently have no symptoms but I will soon be unwell according to my oncologist.
Has anyone had this treatment and what side effects, short-term and long term, did they experience?
