    External radiation

    Radiation

    The first 3 weeks went very well and didn't notice any difference but after the three weeks of radiation and Chemo the fatigue factor kicked in and I was exhausted all the time.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    The first eight chemo's lasted about 2 1/2 hours each and took about 3 days to get over the exhaustion. The last two Chemo's were about six hours each and it took over two weeks to get over the effects. I had the exhaustion but never had the nausea often associated with Chemo.

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