    External radiation

    Radiation

    First round of 25 was external beam. Second round of 20 (?) was Tomotherapy. So much easier as it was less side effects, no skin burn. However I am highly claustrophobic and having to be in these machines did not help my anxiety.

    Painless Experience: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
