    I am terrified about receiving Radiation therapy. I read about all the bad side effects. How was your experience?

      Late to seeing this. My husband did chemo and radiation together in2015. He was told to use Lansinoh cream which is for breast feeding moms. It worked great and he never got burnt with his 30 treatments. He was also told to use Dove unscented soap and nothing else. He did get fatigue but we expected it with the double whammy. We did see other patients coming in and leaving dressed to go to the gym or to work.
