Radiation vs. Chemotherapy

Honestly, I could do this Radiation thing standing on my head. Compared to Chemo, this is a total cakewalk.

Oh NO! MILD Heartburn! Whatever shall I do!? Maybe I haven’t come into the full brunt of side effects yet, but I feel pretty confident that I’ll make it through the rest of the treatments with minimum setbacks. I’m about halfway done now (9 treatments out of 20), and to date I’ve started to notice a burning sensation in my throat, and some redness in the treatment area.

I mean, no needles, no vomiting, no horrible horrible side-effects. I wish all cancers were treated with only radiation! I’d VOLUNTEER.

Mood: Trooper.
