      This would be a great question to post in our Questions section. Additionally, here is a link to the radiation page on the American Cancer Society's website: http://bit.ly/Px1Zr0. It provides a good overview and includes a radiation side effects worksheet. I hope this helps. Keep strong - you can do this.

      I received 2 rounds of radiation....one in lower abdomen, the other upper abdomen. I experienced upper and lower gastrointestinal pains, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn and bloating. Lots of weary tired and exhaustion. But everyone reacts differently. I never had anything of the external side effects. But some people do have what looks like a sun burn. Sending you good vibes and well wishes!
