What kind of radiation?  I had 33 treatments of proton, early April '12 to mid may.  Even got a graduation certificate and they let me keep the mask to boot.

My husband just began his radiation treatments on Monday for a couple of "hot spots" they found on a PET scan after going thru chemo.  He's doing really well and we know this will take care of the minute amount left.  Good luck with your treatments, and keep that positive attitude - it makes all the difference!  God bless you.

Good luck with the treatments, my friend had several rounds of radiation treatment for breast cancer.  She is keeping a good attitude and full of faith, that makes things better for herself as well as those around her.  Hard to imagine that a person in such a tough spot can still laugh and be nice.  She has set the example for me to follow as I also have this journey to endure (luekemia).  So far, I am making it.  There have been 11 months since treatment and I am still not showing signs of needing any more chemo.  Keep positive and enjoy each day.  It can be done.
