    Radiation

    I am at Massachusetts General's Lunder Proton / Photon Radiation Therapy Center receiving 2 weeks of photon radiation to be followed by 3 weeks of proton radiation. This is a pre-surgery procedure to prepare my left pelvis, where the chondrsarcoma is located, for surgery. Currently (3/30/12) in the first week. No noticeable effects. Willing to share experiences.

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