Hello. Was wondering if anyone here doing rads and chemo at the same time? I'll be taking a low dose of cisplatin not sure how often but I do know it's for the duration of radiation. I live with my sister but I still feel alone in this. I don't know how this is going to effect me. My onc is really good but its like pulling teeth. Any thoughts?

My wife has had cancer in both breasts, and I've never heard of that. Why would a radiologist put a patient under physical duress while undergoing chemotherapy?

I'm not a doctor, but something smells, bigtime, at least to me...

I had a reaccurence to the skin. Nodules keep popping up on my breast. I asked her is it ibc because of the way my skin looks and she said and I quote "we don't like to call it that" also my lymph node above my collar bone is swollen.
