I have been having radiation 4 times a week now for 2 weeks since my lumpectomy and while I had radiation before surgery it was a lower dosage and only twice a week. I am having numerous side effects the worse being the fatigue, nausea and lack of appetite. I could get around the lack of appetite if the nausea was better. Does anyone have any suggestions any meds to try (they currently have me on zoforan for the nausea and it isn't working), herbal supplements I could try or anything else? I don't think I can make it at least another 4 weeks this way. I have a test next friday to see if the treatment is working or if we have to increase my dosage and frequency again. I am told that canker sores are also a possibility does anyone have any suggestions for these?
