What Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Cancer Survivors said about their Radiation Therapies.

Had TOMOTHERAPY without any known side affects

I hear you're pretty pukey but thats about it. Oh and it melts your innards and body externally.
not part of treatment
None yet, though I get some if chemo doesn't kick it.
June 30th 2009, forgot how much the dose was, it was everyday for the whole two months. Side effects: burned skin, loss of appetite, hair loss, sore throat, gastric pain.
non yet
23 rounds of radiation on my neck and shoulder.
Radiation daily for 3 weeks ending 28/6/2012
Yes, radiation on both sides, and I have had breast cancer on both sides.
20 sessions of radiotherapy on my mediastinal mass which caused damage to my left lung and heart in May - June 2012. The side effect I had was tiredness.
Expected January 2013 x 30 days.
23 radiation sessions
Intensity modulated radiation therapy, June 7th- July 12th 2012.
Radiation therapy was (25) Involved Field Radiation over 5 weeks, March 29th through May 2nd 2012. The radiation treatment itself was painless, although the mask and tongue guard were uncomfortable. The side effects were progress skin burns, mouth sores, difficulty swallowing, and nausea. The side effects subsided a couple of weeks after treatment ended.
no radiation
Bunch of long words
Zevlin. Horrible pain in my feet, very slow recovery, severe fatigue
3 docs said yes, 3 docs said no, so I did not have radiation after chemo treatments proved decent
All of feb thirty days. Nausea and tired.
Will Complete 20 rounds in July 2015
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? I have 2 daughters, LOL.
May 11th 2016 we decide to not have the external beam radiation recommended by our Oncologist.
