Radiation wasn't what I expected

When I read the little booklet and it said radiation can be six weeks, I said to my husband, "I'm not going to go some place for six weeks for radiation." But then, it wasn't what I thought it would be at all. And there would be several women in this little group, you know, and you'd see the same ones every day because, and how you doing and they were nice to each other. Well, at seven weeks because the last week they give you heavier radiation right on the scar. Then every week you see the doctor, and every week you have a blood sample taken for platelet count and so forth.
