Radiation prone position

i am lying prone for breast cancer radiation, I am having rib pain from the position on the board, I believe it’s because my ribs just sit high. Has anyone else experienced this? I have been taking Motrin before my treatments but it was terrible pain this weekend, hard to sleep and take a deep breath.

Let the techs. know and perhaps they can do something to make you more comfortable. Mine was done while on my back with my arms holding onto a handle above my head. The time is short but you need to be comfortable so you aren’t moving.
