    External radiation

    Radiation

    Radiation was simple the third time but since the first radiation the side effects have been terrific, scar tissue pain, teeth falling out, shoulder painful and sort of dislocatedl and to top it trismus.

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