Can radiation do this?
I had a lumpectomy and radiation 8 years ago. The treated breast seems to have continued shrinking; not my imagination because I can tell by comparison to the untreated side that the size difference is much more noticeable now. I have no insurance now so I can't go back to my oncologist. Can anyone tell me?

Hi Brwe, Have you lost weight or are you on a diet? Try going to this chat board and asking the same question: http://www.breastcancer.org/ Good luck.

I struggle with low energy and have what appears to be some permanent neuropathy issues. I aged in the past 2 years- the dark circles under my eyes are still there and no amount of makeup covers it up.

Blessings to all in the thick of this battle.
May 20th 2008 is the day I found out I had breast cancer! Ironic! I am CANCER FREE now!

Keeping you in my prayers.

This was the last week of treatments for my Grandpa. He goes tomorrow to the surgeon to check in and see what the word is. He's going to make it through this.

I've been well so I haven't been on much but hope to get back to normal soon to catch up.

eta: Well, found out today from Mom...at the surgeon visit today he told Grandpa and Dad he thinks it's a tumor on Grandpa's tongue. Dad didn't tell me, he just told me his tongue has been swollen, but Mom told me later.

I was going to post an update on my husband. He has spent the last 6 weeks in the hospital. We moved him from Tulsa to the Mayo Clinic. They opened him up because he had a bowel obstruction. When they got into his abdomen they found he has a frozen abdomen. The way they described it is like pouring concrete into your belly. They can't tell what any organs are. There was nothing they could do. His colon cancer has now spread to his liver and he is in the final stages. He is very confused right now and can't find the right words to say. This is so very hard to see. He is a brilliant guy. He is a chemical engineer. We have 2 small kids and he is only 33. I am devastated. Words can't describe what we are going through but I know others have been through this so I am not alone. I love him dearly and hate to see him so bad. Just need a shoulder to cry on. Thanks.

Oh, how very sad...I am very, very sorry. I was hoping he was getting better - your family will be in my prayers.
