    Side Effects (Fatigue (tiredness)): I think some of the fatigue was more from just the general stress of the situation rather than from the treatments themselves.

    Radiation (External radiation ): I was very fortunate to have and excellant radiation oncologist and facility next door to where I work. I was able to go during my lunch hour and get my radiation treatments. I had 38 treatments with just some fatigue and burns near the end of the treatments. I never had to skip any days of treatment but arm was pretty raw the last week of treatment.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): I had the first surgery in May for the removal of what they thought was a lipoma in my left forearm. I then had a 2nd surgery at Moffitt Cancer Center to try and obtain clear margins. I didn't lose any function in my arm. I do have some residual numbess between my incision and hand and often have discomfort especially when the weather changes.
