My mom had 2 brachytherapy treatments that were approximately 5-6 minutes each. A couple of weeks after the treatments she was complaining of some discomfort in her back. When my sister went to rub her back she noticed redness (like sunburn) that started at her mid back and extended to the top of her buttocks. It is going away now and it is more tan than red. When my mom went back to her radiologist this week, she showed him her back and a picture of what it looked like when we discovered it. He said that he didn't know what it was and didn't think it was from radiation. She also had 5 weeks of external radiation.
Did anyone experience this?
Thanks for your help!
