Weill have gamma Knife radiation to brain lesions
Radiation started 10/10/07 and I go M-F once a day for 6 weeks
None to date - The surgeon and oncologist felt that I should wait before starting chemo or radiation and be on the anti-fungal medication, indicating at least a year, to see if once the infection was gone, the remaining spots in my lungs would be gone. In January of 2010, I lost my job, medical insurance and the financial ability to continue the meds. I've recovered enough to find work and have been there long enough to receive medical insurance...now to find the courage to return to the doctor and take up where we left off, uhhh less the pre-existing conditions...to be continued...

So I should finish around December 13, 2010 depending on if I miss any days or if my oncologist wants to change my plan. My side affects aren't too bad. I already have some shortness of breath so I don't think it is from the radiation. I have really sensitive skin so It is kind of red, so the therapists gave me some cream to rub on it. They mentioned that my skin will get worse before it gets better.
Feb. 24, 2009 Gamma knife radiation perfexion treatment The procedure is nothing short of a miracle in technology, however it requires a metal `cage` to be attached to your skull. That process is brutal, as it the pressure release when it is removed. But they got em' so it was worth it :)

Only side effect to radiation therapy is loss of hair in my neck area, which is a poasitive as I did not need to shave my face for several months. Hair is slowly growing back, which tells me that laser hair removal is not permanent, so stop throwing your money away and keep waxing which I am sure is cheaper. How I know this?

Left skull base October'09. Dehydration, hair loss, weight loss, ringing in ears with a pressure that felt as though ears were going to explode. Blisters on ears both inside and out and raw peeling facial skin. January '10 another round of 15 treatments on pelvic area and spine. Unable to walk, numbness of entire lower body and left leg. Effects still going on to left side of body. Feet freeze like they are always in a vat of ice. They are very heavy feeling as though they are being dragged. Hole through the center of back. I assume this is where the radiation burned thru the body.
Doctor saids he want help.

Bad Burns from radiation (37 treatments). Low energy..or should we say NO energy!

Radiation for me became a time of meditation and a time to just lay back and picture my cancer cells being burned to a crisp (along with my bladder, vagina, uterus, ovaries, and anything else in there)...sometimes I cried during treatment and sometimes I just pretended it wasn't really me...I had the best team and although I hope to never have to deal with this treatment again I know where I will go without a doubt - Wellspring Oncology in St.Petersburg Florida. I had six weeks of daily (mon-fri) treatments starting Sept 8, 2008 and ending Oct.20, 2008.

Full radiation daily 6 weeks , 3 internal radiation treatments
bracheythreapy (internal radiation) very uncomfortable stayed in the hospital for 4 days . had to lay flat on my back for 4 days with minimal movement . they gave the radiation twice a day . there was 19 catheters inserted into the tumor where they ran the radiation in and out . my legs hurt for a couple weeks after. bleeding stopped after 2 days. some nausea for a week after.
28 Radiation treatments, 5 targeted treatments to lymph nodes and Brachy Therapy (4 treatments). Side effects: Diarrhea, exhaustion, sleeplessness, dehydration, skin irritation.
Internal and external radiation 5 days awesome for 20 minutes
For me radiation was a breeze..I had no side affects outside of hairloss in the treated area. I also had 2 internal rads which seem to last forever but I made it!!
fatigue, constant nausea, uncontrollable bowels, diahrea from hell!, dehydration. A couple of blisters on my hiney. The good news: the bleeding stopped after the second radiation treatment. Brachytherapy, 4 sessions, was interrupted for a blood transfusion for critical low blood cell counts.
Doing Radiation concurrently with Chemo so I'm not exactly sure which side affects to attribute to which treatment. Very nauseated, shaky, dizzy, tender in the groin and abdomen area.
alot of fatigue, upset stomach, darkening of skin, irratated skin in area involved, sores from radiation--started treatment in February 2006 (28 sessions of external pelvic radiation)
constipated then diarrhea symptoms like a bladder infection but 1000000 times worse tired
Radiation side effects were just becoming exausted. I was pretty healthy until I got cancer, never had any health issues and never had to take any medication before.
IMRT started 7/7/08
Radiation Oct 07-Dec 07 5 weeks of daily external radiation, then 3 days of Brachytherapy in hospital. Burning in pelvic area, frequent loose stools (5-6 times a day) frequency and urgency with urination. Really bad fatigue, lasted a long time after. Oct 09 External radiation to vag 10x (2 weeks). burning in vag/urethra, pain on urination, radiation burns on outside of thighs (entry points) fatigue.
pain, N&V, Menopause, Exhaustion, Depression 10-09 to 1-30-10 SECOND ROUND OF EXTERNAL BEAM RADIATION 01-01-11 to 02-17-11
Radiation began along with chemo therapy May 21 2014. Side Effects: Extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting, dehydration, luckily very minimal radiation burn to rectum and groin area, and diarrhea. Hospitalized once for the vomiting. Very unpleasant. Keep in mind although I have cervical cancer they also radiated my stomach area due to lymphnode involvement.
Started external radiation on 2/4, to have 25 treatments; then 2 "internal" ones fatigue, but can't blame it all on radiation
Had external and internal (brachytherapy) radiation over a six week schedule. 28 external rounds and 5 internal rounds. Radiation was concurrent with chemotherapy (cisplatin) for 6 weeks once a week. Seriously fatigued for at least six months post treatment.
26 external radiations; 5 internal radiations (brachytherapy); No burning; diarrhea and intestinal cramping-relieved with levsin medication; longer term effects--pain and swelling in abdomen and lower back pain
Radition in January 2014. Elasticity issues in vaginal area.
I have one more week of radition and i am done with my 6 weeks of treatment. The external radition treatments were a piece of cake. It took about 10 min 5 days a week. They dont' hurt and i never really had any side effcts until this week. A little burning and itching in the private areas but tolerable. The bad part was th internal radiation. I don't want to scare anyone but they do hurt somewhat. We are not talking the worst pain of your life but def uncomfortable. The first day is the worst and it gets better from there. The first day for me meant a cathedar in place, then something in the rectum, then the vaginal cylinder in place. I stayed like that for about an hour while they did the treatment planning. Then they did the treatment which lasted only 6 minutes. I did cry through it because having every hole plugged up is just not a natural thing girls! The second one went better. They only put the vaginal cylinder in and take a few xrays and then the 6 min treatment. Still unconfotable but muc easier. I have 2 more to go. They do offer you sediatives and mild pain pills, but i handled it without that stuff. But it is there if you request it.

6 weeks over summer 2009 burned skin, menopause

On the friday, doc checked my 'skin' while I lay crying on the exam table. he offered that treatment could finish then at 29 sessions so the healing process could begin. pain, pain and more pain. cystitus. diarrhea.
Radiation - 32 treatments
To start on 4th April 2011
IMRT using PET Scan and CT Scan results. Scheduled to being 11/9/09. IMRT went smoothly at first. As treatment progressed, I started to see signs of burning along my bikini line and painful itching on by anus. Delays in IMRT have been caused by low blood counts (low platelets).
6 weeks of radiation or 30 treatments
radiation when disgnosed to shrink the tumor & chemo to kill it. no effect really so the full surgery was needed for removal
2/09/10 daily except for weekends. 3rd degree burns/skin discoloration
IMRT 6 wks. 8/2013 through 9/26/2013
30 treatments over 6 weeks. IMRT Targeted at sphincter and lymph nodes. Trouble with urination, difficult starting and significant burning and feeling of constriction. Taking tons of AZO which helps slightly. Developed UTI at end of second week was treated with antibiotics. Anal mucous membranes extremely raw, even water hurts when it touches the skin. Passing anything is extremely painful like small glass particles. Feeling persists that I need to defecate consistently. Once the immediate sharp pain passes, feeling something internal is bruised which throbs and hurts for a couple hours. Try to limit inputs to reduce outputs. Have not had any diarrhea or nausea to speak of (though I feel they would be preferable if I could choose). Doctor has been great about prescribing things to try and reduce discomfort. Have his special ointment (Aquaphor blended with 10% lidocaine and 1% hydro-cortisone), Silver Sulfadiazine, Proctofoam, Domeboro (Astringent), and pain killers to help me sleep when my ass is throbbing. Of the things he's given me I feel the Silver Sulfadiazine has been most helpful with the feeling of cracking and splitting of the mucous membranes and generally making my anus feel better.
12/2014-1/2015 6 weeks of radiation. Radiation burns horrable but resolved quickly after the radiation stopped. I have lasting pain in buttocks hips and groin area
Thirty-six (3-D CRT) treatments beginning November 18, 2013 and ending January 29, 2014.

Plaque brachytherapy - July 2003. Plaque inserted on Friday morning and removed Monday night. Long, long weekend in isolation and having to carry a geiger counter around. Eye was puffy, bloodshot for a long time, painful and vision deteriorated quite rapidly. Now have retinal detachment, pretty lousy vision in that eye and grey areas on the sclera (white of the eye) that may be burns from the cauterisation tool or where the sclera has thinned due to the radiation. Last November (2007), it was noticed that the edge of the tumour is still growing in some areas and I have therefore had to have these treated with Transpupillary Thermotherapy (laser).

Months of radiation that covered both my head and chest area. I no longer have salivary glands and I suffer from dry mouth (xerostomia) -- which means that I drink about a gallon to a gallon and a half of liquid every day. Taste has dramatically diminished and has been altered.
April 22nd 2008 through June 4th 2008. It's hell. But you're in a blur of misery. A few months later your a better person, grateful for the blessings you have in life. Still working on regaining my saliva.
Radiation therapy due to start approximately 6 weeks after surgery, September 2016
IMRT. 35 sessions. Receiving daily. Sores in the mouth began appearing by session 10, but tautness of the palate was felt by session 5. Dryness in the mouth had become quite noticable by the second week, but Biotene and similar products helped with that. Gels, oral rinses, throat numbbng spray used as a gargle all helped. Propel and similar water products made swallowing easier.
