    External radiation

    Radiation

    I think because it was everyday, it did have an impact on my daily life as I couldn't take a summer vacation with my family due to this. Also, I think I was more tired/exhausted than I thought I was. Just tough to get moving in the morning long after I finished treatment.

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

    Side Effects

    Feel like this has been the biggest obstacle of my treatment. It continues to sabotage me almost daily.
