Hi ladies - I finished rads on 7th August - had the bonus package, have 15 and get 5 boosters free!!
I feel very lucky to have had minimal problems - definitely got a 'vanilla boob' and a 'strawberry boob' now, but only real issues have been dry skin areas that look like tide marks where I haven't washed!! My nip was quite dry, but with the continued moisturising, it seemed to sort itself out . . . . I find if I don't put my glasses on, I can hardly see much difference, lol !! My shoulder/back seem to be fine - but as I am pretty much on the exactly 2 weeks since finishing, I am hoping there isn't a hiccup waiting to get me. Oh yes, the 'stab in the boob' feeling from time to time - can't exactly rub it better in public though. Passes quickly.
I did find it all in all an okay experience, as I was under UCLH, and everywhere is very bright and modern and welcoming, the staff excellent, and the R/T rooms even had different musics and low lighting and sometimes the light-changing coloured lights kicked in. Depends who was working on the day.
I hope everyone continues onwards and upwards to better brighter days now - and for all new ladies coming along, I wish you a calm and easy time of it. And thanks again Gill for your advice at the time.
