    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Although the diagnosis was a shock (no risk factors, very healthy), it was less stressful than figuring out how to pay for the treatment, as an uninsured freelancer.

    External radiation

    Radiation

    I chose not to receive chemotherapy, went straight to radiation. With wonderful doctors and even more importantly wonderful radiation techs, I found the experience painless and minimally disruptive. I worked all through my course of radiation with no problem, just fatigue which was completely manageable by getting more sleep at night.

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