    Internal radiation

    Radiation

    I worry that I don't know what the side effects are. This impacted my daily life because I had little kids and I couldn't hug them or go near them or my husband during the treatment.

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

    Side Effects
