Lumpectomy & Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT)
I have been diagnosed with stage 1 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. I had genetic testing and all was Negative! I am having a lumpectomy. I am supposed to be having this IORT type of radiation while in surgery if tumor isn’t to close to the skin. Doc said it will be about 40 min of radiation to that area only.
Has anyone had this type of radiation before and how did you do from it?
How about the lumpectomy? How was your recovery?
