Radiation is OVER!
On May 18th I finished my 15th treatment of radiation therapy. I can say that radiation is not as bad as chemo but still not what I consider fun. The first part was not that bad. However, the last half caused a severe sore throat. Eating was very difficult to say the least. I lost 3.8 pounds in one week. The doctor gave me several narcotics but it never really took the pain away. It just took the edge off enough so I could at least get some type of nutrition in my body. My throat is still sore but it is on the mend. I am eating better everyday.
