The black marks were a bother

They radiated me from two different sides and there's no pain. Radiation is no pain at all. They just lay you on the table with your arm up and they mark all over your breast with black markings, and they lay a mold underneath to conform to the way you have to be laying on the table when you have your radiation. Most people are apprehensive about that, when the mold is being taking and the markings are all being done. The black markings were something that bothers a lot of people, and it bothered me, too, because I was afraid of losing all those marks when I showered. And of course, the hot flashes, perspiration destroyed them, too. But they just go on ahead and they just mark you up again.
