First radiation treatment


Finally after a months wait and a lot of hospital appointments to clear a seroma and streptococcus infection, I’m ready to start the final part of my treatment 😱

I'm sure it will be less difficult than what has gone before. It passes very quickly.

Goodness you have been through the mill. It seems that you and me went through similar experiences. I contracted sepsis 3 days after my op and had my seromas drained every 2 days because of build up of fluid. Antibiotics didn’t want to touch it so in the end I had to go back into theatre to have it all cleaned up and packed. A long haul after that as it had to heal from the inside out whilst packing was changed every 2 days, something I was taught to do myself. Now it is just a scar, but what an ordeal it was. I do hope you get yours sorted out soon and wish you every success in your treatment. x

Wow that’s a lot more than me, luckily 2 1/2 weeks of antibiotics seems to have cleared mine up 🙏 I’m just waiting to hear from the radiologist now. Keep strong and fighting xx
