Today I started radiation treatments for my breast cancer, when do the side effects start and what can I expect?

    Everyone is different. Some people have some fatigue. My chest and axilla were radiated, both areas turned bright red (like a sunburn). Some people have the skin break down, have blisters, etc. I feel blessed I didn't have major issues. My RT normally would have prescribed an antibiotic cream for the last couple of weeks but I'm allergic to the main ingredient and since my skin was intact he opted not to have me use it. Every clinic will recommend what to put on the area radiated (I used pure aloe vera gel) and put some on afterwards and before bedtime.
