    External radiation

    Radiation

    Radiation first time tired me. Left me with overcooked esophagus - had trouble swallowing and had a terrible cough. Had the procedure to stretch the esophagus - wasn't greatly successful. Cough lasted for over a year. Tried about everything to stop it - only vicodin worked.

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

    Decision Point

    Go back January 2012 for another cat scan. Luckily this is very slow growing as my first was - treatment will be discussed in january 2012
