    External radiation (Instensity modulated)

    Radiation

    after day 15 of 44 days of radiation treatment I am experiencing some back pain I have been able to continue work without to many problems I have the radiation early in the day so it doesn't disrupt my routine.

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Side Effects

    still having significant back pain that doesnt seem to respond now to the pain killers--I'm still working but doing less and less thank God I have a wonderful crew of guys working for me who pick up the slack. I still feel bad that I cant do as much as I used to---I guess its a macho thing
