LUMPECTOMY FOR BEGINNERS post-op; makin' a list and checkin' it

After reading about DCIS in the Mayo Clinic book and website, etc.

Questions for a radiologist

How do you protect my lungs?

I had so many chest and other x-rays with the spine condition and a recent tendinitis. Don't they make this more dangerous?

Can it wait until my current health concerns are treated better?

How tired will I really get?

Will I need a cough suppressant every time?

My skin is so sensitive that the steri strips made a blister and red welts after the biopsy and surgery; will this be worse? I burn rather than tan.  Will I be too "sunburned" to wear a bra?

How many days of treatment do I need?
