Hi there.  I had radiation therapy, but even though I'm very fair skinned, I didn't experience any blistering.  I only got slightly red.  I was surprised, actually.  I don't think that the skin should still be sore and blistered.  She needs to talk to her doctor.  Hasn't she had follow up visits with the radiation oncologist?

THis does not sound normal, please suggest that she consult a radiation oncologist as soon as possible. Perhaps you can take her since she is staying with you for the time being.

I agree w/ the other ladies. This is NOT normal. I believe that Lori asked if your mom had not followed up w/ appointments since her radiation was completed. I would strongly suggest that you call your family dr and ask if he/she could recommend someone that your mom could see. Please do this as soon as possible.

There shouldn't be any radiation burns after 7 months. The skin might have a red or tanned appearance but not blisters and burns. Glad that you are taking her to get it further checked.
