Has anyone had radiation in the hips? Because of the location that will be radiated, I'm concerned about skin irritation. Any suggestions?

      Did you do radiation in all sites - hips, spine, and breast? I have stage iv breast cancer that went to bones in both femurs. I am taking faslodex and zometa as well.
      If you did not do radiation to breast and only to bone, then what was the reason? I will be talking soon to a radiation onc.

      I also have stage iv breast cancer that went to both femurs. I am taking faslodex and zometa. My femur tumors went in to remission but now my latest scan shows L4-L5 (bottom of spine). My onc wants me to talk to radiation onc soon about doing radiation on this spot. I had a masectomy to take out primary tumor and was in process of making decision on whether or not to do radiation in chest wall. Radiation onc said there is no data on doing radiation in chest wall for stage iv masectomy. Now I will be talking to her about the lower back radiation. Did you do radiation to bone and not breast?
