[MOL] Adria extravasation, radiation to same area

My sister has also had an adriamycin extravasation from a Portacath, now 8
weeks ago.  She has had tremendous pain, and although the skin has not
broken down she has severe inflammation and fibrosis over her collarbone and
breast.  We are wondering about the safety of radiation therapy now, as the
damage is on the same side as her tumor.  Has anyone experienced this?
Please reply to jsheetz@med.utah.edu.  Thanks!
