I had double radiation, twice a day instead of once a day. I don't appear to have any heart problems from it and it's been over ten years now.
I do agree with the others, and I was warned by the onc, that the chemo can very well affect the heart. In fact, the protocol my onc used was to only give me half of the Adriamycin (the A in my A/C/5FU chemo). I would have to go back the following week for the second half of the A.
I hope whatever they find is very easily treated. We just don't deserve all of the side effects of our treatments.
