Radiation is hrbt, left side.
if you are getting whole breast radiation therapy to the left breast, this would not affect your white blood cell count since there is no bone marrow being affected by radiation. the changes you are seeing in your white blood cell counts are normal variations and are not from radiation therapy. I hope your treatments go well. how is your skin doing with the treatments?
Hi, thank you for the info. I don't have any redness yet. I use 99% Aloe and Caladium. They are the same ingredients as in Mediderm. Cost less and you can get them at any health food store, also some drug stores. It is working so far. SW
