Started radiation today. It has been decided that 7 high dose treatments are than 30 low dose and as such chemo will not acompany. But it is a fall back if rad is unable to do the deal. I guess we'll see in a few weeks. God Bless and good luck to all!

My husband had the high dose radiation and tolerated it well.  Positive thoughts coming your way.

I have no personal experience with radiation, but have heard other survivors report positive results from high dose radiation. I know you have some concerns about the side effects, I would. I am hoping the side effects are minimal and the result is positive.
