  • On no that is unpleasant for you. I had burns and blisters on my collar bone as i had the lymph nodes in my neck zapped too. It is not the best but the job it does on the cancer is worth it. It took mine about a month to clear fully. All the best with your continuued recovery xx

  • Had radio but nothing like your side effects. Hope it settles soon and you get back on your feet soon. X

  • I had a similar situation this time last year,the radiology nurses gave me mepilix dressing to put on the area it was very helpful,eased the discomfort a lot although it still took a few weeks to clear away.

  • I had burns under my breast, as well as cream, I had dressings that I think were paraffin soaked these helped a lot with the discomfort keeping the area moist

  • Oh dear ... Not nice !! I had urns & skin loss across my chest and under my arm ... Unpleasant to say the least , but only took around 3-4 weeks ... In my mind worth it in the long run...keep positive ... Hugs X

  • I am currently experiencing the same - very sore. I have been using aloe Vera gel which seems to be helping. Xx

  • Hi i also had burns under my arm as i had lymphnodes removed also it took about 2 weeks to heal .just keep reminding yourself of the benefits its not easy but you will heal .xhugs

  • It well get better. Hang in there. I had the paraffin soaked dressings from the nurse in radiotherapy. They helped a lot and made me feel more confortable. To hold the dressings in place the nurse made a make-shift bra from 'knitted' type knickers!! They worked well. Hope yours improves soon xx

  • All these replies are frightening me. My first RT is scheduled for 1/9. Thinking of backing out now even though I've already had the simulation and tattoos. I've never felt comfortable about having RT. Do more women get these problems than not?
