Hi Lisa and welcome
Sorry you have been diagnosed with BC but glad you are being treated, hopefully cured! As the girls have said, they have to give the wound time to heal before further treatment. It drags on when all you want to do is get it done and over with but makes sense.

Hi Lisa and welcome. I had my second WLE at the end of May and started rads 7 weeks later. I have now had 15 of 25. When we were discussing start dates the oncologist said i had to start within 3 months of my first surgery which was end of April. Mine was high/intermediate grade DCIS so probably a different pathway and different hospitals seem to have their own guidelines. Good luck with it. Xx

I have just joined the forum this evening after reading so many interesting and helpful comments. I was diagnosed with BC in June , had lumpectomy and sne in July . Have my onc appointment this Thursday . Just wondered what will happen and the likelihood of when radiotheraphy may start ? I realise it's all a process and a waiting game ....
Any help would be more than grateful? X

I'm worried about effects post rads as I really want to get back to my fitness regime - I used to go to boot camp 4 times a week before BC and cycle at weekends. I know I will have to gradually build up again but am worried about going back. My mind wants to do more than my body!!! I just want to feel better about myself again - fitness was my 'thing!' Cycling is quite good as it's lovely being out in the fresh air and no pressure on boob area - I did wear a soft sports bra with a soft dressing in it to stop friction! Legs feel ok today - probably hurt tomorrow!!
