    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Being diagnosed at twenty years old with cancer was the scariest experience I think I've ever been through.

    Internal radiation

    Radiation

    My first internal radiation was horrible. I didn't have enough pain medicine in my system when they took the devices out. It was the worst pain I have ever been in. They put me under the second time and it went a LOT better.

    Painless Experience: Not Specified
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
