more than skin deep

The stages of recovery from radiation:

1- Burned, blistered, raw, achy and sore.

2-Fragile and sensitive.

3-Renewal. Still very tender but on the road to healing.

4-Better. Not as new, but strong, healthy and fit.

I am hovering somewhere between stages three and four, sometimes taking two steps forward and one step back. I am making progress, though.

And my skin is healing, too.

So happy to read about the healing, skin and all. I will read your site as you continue on this journey, with great interest.

I'm learning a lot from what you write.

You'll get there. It tough but doable. I did 12 months of chemo and rads. Hang in there.
