    Radiation (External radiation ): I had 20 treatments of mantle field radiation. Towards the end, eating was painful, and my skin was burnt. Those side effects were short lived. I did end up with a sluggish thyroid, and have to take a pill daily, most likely for the rest of my life.

    Procedure or Surgery (splenectomy): My splenectomy was supposed to involve a 5 day hospital stay, which turned into 15, thanks to pneumonia and a wound infection. Luckily, living without a spleen hasn't impacted my immune system significantly. Get vaccinated!
