External radiation - D-14

Radiation Associated with Sarcoma - Adult Soft Tissue Cancer. Posted on October 24, 2018 View this journey (4 Experiences)

I worked fulltime during radiation treatments, my appointment was at 4:45 pm each day. Side effects included a very bad sunburn (I've always burned easily) and being tired enough to go to bed early and sleeping hard. Lasting impact included a strong recommendation not to return to cycling due to brittle bones in shoulder. Luckily, some bone regeneration took place in year 3 and RadOnc revised recommendation provided I wear protective gear. So, I look like a gladiator on my mount, but I'm happy!
My wife was receiving chemotherapy during my radiation treatments, I wouldn't have traded places for the world!

Painless Experience: Strongly Agree
