Hi there my mum is starting week 4 of radiation. The tumour could not be removed totally due to its location. They are giving my mum mild doses of radiation also due to its location. Not that I want there to be nasty side effects it just worries me that there has been no nausea, weight loss, loss of appetite or strange tasting food etc. only very very dry nasal passages. My question is does the radiation have to make you ill in order to work? there have been no scans during the last 3 weeks to see if it's shrinking or growing. Is this normal?
