Well, its been a month since my radiation treatment finished, Ive had the port removed ( no stitches) and Im so so. I have days, god and bad. For the 2 weeks after treatment, I burned up from the inside out pretty bad! I became so red, and dark, my skin blistered and i was lathering on the cream they gave me, and the ISOGEL to cool it. It was worse under my armpit where the scar is. I then began to peel in sheets for about a week, it was disgusting! Now, Im a nice brown tan, all over the top quarter right side of my chest. Its beginning to fade and under my arm is more comfortable.
Amidst all that, we moved into our lovely home with a view over the ocean. I lifted, and moved stuff around, did what I shouldnt have, and yes, Lymphodeama flared up! Ive had to work really hard at getting the swelling down, as I dont want a sock on! Im off to Traralgon to see my Radiologist tomorrow, and she has threatened me that if its still not up to her standard, she'll put one on me! And with the weather becoming warmer, its a bit hard for my hands and fingers not to swell. Oh well, we'll see.
Im on antibiotics again for another bladder infection. I havent had one for months! Hubby and I got a little carried away the other morning, so... um... yeah, well It was worth it tho! hahahaha.
Hope your all doing well!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
