Just got back here after a few week absence. My 10 year old son has completed 10 proton radiation sessions so far. Wondering if anybody on here can tell me how bad the side effect may be? I've read all the literature from the proton Center, but wanted to come to my own experts :-)
So far we have seen no side effects. Although, he did have a migraine last night. He has had migraines since he was 3 years old. Watching to make sure this is not a side effect of the radiation. Trying to understand if all of the side effects I have read about on here will happen to a proton radiation patient.
Thanks for all the support through the beginning part of our journey. Now we are going through a separation of our family for the six weeks of radiation treatment. Treatment is in Houston, we live in Ohio. I did the first two weeks, now my husband is with him for the next two weeks. Praying the six weeks goes by fast. We have 3 children at home so it is hard on everyone.
