Ewing's Sarcoma and radiotherapy

I'm now in my 8th year of remission after being diagnosed and treated for Ewing's Sarcoma in my right scapula. I had a year of chemotherapy and some radiation therapy instead of surgery. Somewhat recently I've begun having pain in my shoulder area again which the doctors have assured me was scar tissue pain as a result of the radiotherapy. I still want to get an MRI to make sure but I wanted to see what the experience of others was with radiation therapy after-effects. I've read that they can take years to show themselves and the scar tissue can get worse as the years go by which is what I'm experiencing (hopefully, much better than recurrence).

Has anyone had radiation therapy and experience these side-effects?

Thank you
