Skin and Breast Shape Changes After Radiation Treatment
Currently I undergo radiation tx after unilateral mastectomy which has been about 2 months ago. My plastic surgeon is great and satisfied with the degree of tissue expansion, but I`m still unsure what to expect.
After being in radiation for 2 weeks I noticed evident changes in skin elasticity, color and dark brown lesions on irradiated areas. What can be used to protect damaged skin except Radiagel?
Can this brown lesions go away? How it`s going to look after tissue expander is replaced?
