head and neck cancer

Diary of Radiation Symptoms

I had IMRT radiation to the head and neck (mainly the right side) for 30 sessions, a total of 66Gy of radiation.  I found that the radiation symptoms changed quickly, so I hope by documenting them here, it will help others who may be going through something similar.


Day 1 - Radiation #1

  • muscle tightness

Day 2 - Radiation #2:

  • muscle tightness
  • eyes very tired (like after being in sun)

Day 3 -

  • no soreness in jaw muscles
  • no more fatigue like Day 2

Day 4 -

Nanotech for cancer
