Our Blog Post today is a warning for some of the hidden side effects of radiation. We are all told about the fatigue that will set in after a couple of weeks of treatment, or the radiation burn that you will probably get after a few weeks and going into the end of treatment, but these are some that you may not be told about and some of them don't show up for years down the survivorship road.

If you're a breast cancer patient, you may have heard of or even had Non-Invasive Breast Brachytherapy, or (NIBB) as a part of your treatment. While it's not as widely used as conventional radiation therapy, it is gaining recognition and being used more often. More than 50 facilities are using this procedure that has been used for over 10 years. Read our Blog Post today that has the benefits and possible side effects of this type of treatment.

Bob Dewey, a brain cancer patient recorded his complete radiation treatment from setup through the treatment at John Hopkins - Bob said "Here's a video of the full radiation therapy procedure that I'm currently receiving at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The video also shows (at the end) the control room and basement of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Care Center that's kinda become like a second home to me over the past few weeks. This is treatment #25 of 33 total that I'll receive."

Having a Laryngoscopy at my annual checkup - This was a couple years ago at my Head and Neck Cancer Oncologist. I had Donna record what it's like to have a scope done.

They run a camera through my nasal cavity and down my throat to take a look at the area where the malignant tonsil was taken out. Usually, they give me a shot of numbing mist and let that soak for about 15 minutes before doing the scope. This time, they came in and squirted my nose, then immediately put the scope in. That doesn't work so well for me.

You will hear me gagging because I wasn't numb, luckily for them, I didn't toss my biscuits on them. Just some rough gagging.

I couldn't resist this. I was always terrified of any type of radiation even x-rays. I even discussed it with my Dr. He laughed and said that It was not the same kind of radiation as the bombs.

Someone asked about the mask I had to wear during radiation treatment to keep my head still during Radiation treatments. Here is a video I happened across that describes the process.
