Late effects of Cobalt radiation in childhood

dlc123 Member Posts: 5 Member

Looking for others of us who had Cobalt radiation in childhood for NON-cancerous, normal things such as enlarged tonsils, acne, thymus gland, feet for shoe fitting. These people are having late effects of Cobalt decay that start popping up in ones 60s. Some late effects are life threatening and certainly quality of life impacting. Thousands of Baby Boomers had this radiation "treatment" as children so if you have been affected, please share your story.

Thank you.
