Iím so sorry you are dealing with this. I had a horrible burn on my chest too. Looking back I wish I had been more persistent in asking for pain med management. One thing I would of done different would see if they could of lowered the dose or skip a few treatments to get a break. The radiation continues to intensify after treatments stop.
Iím sorry if I canít offer any magic cure. I would stay with the Aquafor though because it may be helping more than you know.
Hang in there...and donít be afraid to speak up for better meds. Easier said than done, but itís what we need to do! Lots of love, Karen H.
