Health Guide March 05, 2007
As one of HealthCentral's Expert Patients, I have written a guide to radiation.
When it comes to breast cancer treatment, radiation can seem like awalk in the park compared to major surgery and months of chemotherapy.For me, it was a breeze. I had already survived a lumpectomy andchemotherapy before my turn at radiation. I’d endured hair loss,nausea, low blood counts, fever, two hospitalizations, and a bloodtransfusion. Radiation couldn’t – and didn’t – even compare. But it’sstill quite a process, and what follows will shed some light on how youmight breeze through radiation. It’s all quite do-able – if you knowwhat to expect.
