    Chemotherapy and radiation combined

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    The biggest side effect on the 3rd week into treatment is the damage to the esophagus from the radiation. Very painful to swallow anything.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
