    Unfortunately, we aren't doctors and can't give you opinions on pre-existing conditions, such as yours. It is unique only to you. You absolutely need to discuss this further with your radiologist/oncologist. Take care, Sharon

    Thank you, Of course, I have discussed and the two radiation specialists don't know and don't agree which is least risk. Was hoping others who had RSD would have opinion. I think RSD is more prevalent than we hear, but often misdiagnosed. The RN I spoke with today at American Cancer had never heard of RSD or CRPS.
