6 years ago plans were made as to how many radiation treatments I was to have. The radiation oncologist gave me the option. Up till then the ladies I knew who had had radiation treatments all had 30 treatments, or 6 weeks. But the oncologist said that he and his fellow oncologists believed that having more than 16 treatments had no beneficial effects and in fact could do more harm than could. So did I want 16 treatments or 30? Having heard what my friends experienced, I opted for the 16 treatments. Was that the correct decision I made? Reading this article, I believe I did. I also found it interesting that there was a third option - an option not presented to me prior to my lumpectomy. But interesting none the less.
