After discussing with Dr. Washington, the Oncologist Radiologist, She recommends having radiation on my hips since it has spread there and I have been in a lot of pain. The Dr. Wants me to radiate the hips for 2 1/2 weeks to ease the pain and control the growth of the cancer growth.
I started on the 23rd of March for every day except the weekends and completed the treatment until April 9th, 2019. It when well. Had some side effects about a month of the radiation. I had serious burns on the skin on my hips that turn my skin black.
Like a bad suntan burn. Had diarrhea for about 3 weeks after treatment. Which was a side effect because the radiation was going through the intestines. Another difficult hurdle of the treatment I have to experience when having this terrible disease of Metastatic Breast Cancer. After the radiation, I back to see Dr. Khong, my Medical Oncologist for continued treatment. Making this journey even more difficult.
