    Oh No

    Freaked out like anybody else would in finding out I had cancer. I considered myself fairly healthy and worked out almost daily.

    External radiation


    Had radiation for six weeks and had sore throat, hoarse voice, Thrush - ugh, and chest rashes. Since completing it four weeks ago, I have developed loss of hearing. This coupled with my blurry vision (which instigated my finding out about my cancer) makes it difficult to do much with friends outside the home. Am hoping my hearing improves.

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