My mother just received conventional radiotherapy two to chest tumors that's been causing her some pain and I was just wondering if pain from the actual radiation is typical or not?
She's scheduled to get 10 treatments in a row to try and shrink the tumors but just after one treatment (on friday, no treatment on weekends) She's experiencing a good amount of pain on Sunday. I was just wondering if it's common or not and if there needs to possibly be a change of treatment for her.
Also if someone can please clarify something I read, about maximum amount of radiation a patient can receive. I believe I read somewhere that there is a maximum limit on radiation a person can receive or something like that?
