In brief: It can be done, but.

A high stress life can contribute to many health and emotional problems.
Why not find ways to reduce the stress in your life? You can resume a full life after breast radiation, but initially you may feel more fatigue than usual. After about six months you should be back to your usual energy level. I hope you can find ways to reduce your stress! very best wishes for your future.
