Monday 25th October
Started my final week, had treatment at 9.15am, then went and see nurse to discuss progress. She was happy with condition of my skin and how scar looked. I did explain that I get the occasional stabbing pain from scar and under arm, apparently this is normal and is the tendons healing up and sending out signals to the body and should pass in time. Off this week as half term and went shopping at lakeside for rest of day.

Had last radiotherapy treatment today, so no more daily trips to hospital, hooray. I sat down with one of radiotherapist after treatment, who explained that any soreness or discomfort may continue for a few more weeks. Also that if going out in the sun over the next 12 months to ensure I use a high factor sun cream as the skin in treated areas of chest, shoulder and neck on right side may be extra sensitive. A follow appointment will come through post for 6-8 weeks time, to just check all is ok. Now treatment has finished I hope to get back to normality once more.
