Survivor since 2012
Hi Kaye, I had a rough bout with the radiation as well. I did saline soaks when the skin began to break down and used tons of aquaphor. Eventually I spent about 10 days on a break from it and taking oxycodone for the pain. I promise you it will pass, but you are right the pain was way more than I expected. I lived in oversized shirts, it helped. Stay strong, it will be over soon, and you will feel better quickly. I hope all goes well!
