External radiation - creed0608

Radiation Associated with Intermediate-Grade Astrocytoma. Posted on October 13, 2011 View this journey (6 Experiences)

My husband had radiation for a period of 6 weeks. They had a special mask created for him. About 3 weeks into the radiation, he began to lose his hair and when it started, it came out quickly. He was very distressed about this, even though we know if that is the worst of it, he is lucky. Besides having to travel to the hospital,which took 45 minutes each way, there was minimal impact to daily life. About 1/2 way through, he did start to feel a little more fatigued, but nothing that a quick cat nap in the afternoon wouldn't fix.

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