Radiation treatment/side effects
I didn’t get to ring a bell when I was done with chemotherapy either. I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. I did chemotherapy then radiation I had 20 rounds of radiation. Once done my results came back from the genetic testing showing I am BRCA positive. I then had a bilateral Mastectomy with reconstruction . This all started January 2020.
can anyone tell me how long it takes for you to get a full head of hair back after months of chemo and 16 rounds of radiation. I got to ring bell, that meant so much to me. finished radiation end of June, my breast
were painful and turned very black, starting to peel now, and I think in a couple of weeks, It will look normal. but I’m still having pain in it, how long does the pain last?
Everyone gets their hair back at different times. Mine started returning a week or so after my last infusion, had enough hair 9 months later to get a nice hair cut. It temporarily came back a different color and texture but then went back to the way it was prior to chem.
There is some aloe at walmart you can put on every night for like 1 month. I just got an aloe leaf and sliced it in half and rubbed it on my neck. it was sticky and it smelled but I just left it on as long as I could. But yeah your skin still wont be 100% but it should be better after. a couple of months.
