I just saw this post. I did the three week + 1 day radiation and I breezed through it. I drove myself every day the 40 miles and back and didn't really feel any different during the treatments and did my normal routines. I never understood why they prescribe the shorter stronger radiation to some but not others but was pleased to have less days of travel!

I had a friend who did it and she was fine. She says I should ask but my skin is sooooo light and delicate... red head freckles type. I’ll let you know what my rad doc says...once my oncologist refers me🙄
