Breathing

Recommended Posts

Seems like I am always asking questions!  I was curious if anyone’s breathing seems much worse after radiation?

Yes, After the SBRT on my lungs. And after standard radiation on breast after breast cancer surgery was very short of breath for 3 or 4 weeks. Now think I probably had some pneumonitis from the radiation. Didn't know about that back then. Glad it passed. For what I had after SBRT got 10 days of Prednisone and that took care of it.  If it were me, I'd mention that to your Oncologist. They can give you steroids that will clear it up. You don't have to suffer through it.
