Long Term Effect of Cobalt Radiation

In 1977 I was treated for a brain tumor, astrocytoma. I received 6 weeks of cobalt radiation. I had no side effects for twenty years. When I turned thirty they began. Seizures, disorientation, confusion, memory loss, eye problems. I'm not complaining. I just want you to know that I'd be happy to talk to anybody who still walks around with this garbage in their brain. And I don't hide my cue ball head anymore. I used to think that since I beat cancer, anybody could. Not true. I lost my mom, my favorite person, to lung cancer two months ago. Such a loss.
