    External radiation

    Radiation

    Radiation wasn't as bad as I thought it would/could be. I'm fair skinned and thought it would burn me - but it nothing more than a light sunburn. My skin started out pink, after a few weeks, and kept turning more red. It was tolerable and wasn't very irritating.

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