This is Deirdre's Breast Cancer Diary. I try to update this blog at least every evening. This is an easy way for me to keep a journal of the experience, and at the same time, I can keep my friends and family up-to-date on what is going on. I find it is not so bad to have cancer, but it is awfully depressing to talk about it. I hope you laugh as you read along. You can find the beginning in February the archives. Thanks again for reading :o)

    Hi Deirdre,

    I think you should ask your doctor when you go for your next appt. I've always known that the radiation affects your skin on the entrance point, because by the time it exits the body it's a very low dose. Most of the energy is deposited upon entrance where it does most of the damage to the tissues (mostly to the area that the doctor wants and avoiding the healthy/normal tissues).
    Please show that area to your doctor.
