I've had a relatively easy time with NHL, (compared to the experiences of many on this forum). I was diagnosed with NHL, 1 node on rt side of my neck diffuse lg B cell stage 1, had 3 treatments of RCHOP & 20 rads, my last PET scan was clean & I'm very, very grateful.
Now that I'm about 6 weeks out from the radiation, my neck, shoulders & back ache & my skin hurts from my jaw to my lower back. It's not debilating & I'm almost embarrassed to complain, but it is starting to wear on my nerves. Is this possibly a side effect of radiation, has anyone else "been there, done that", and does it go away ?
