Well the last of 30 radiation treatments was yesterday and I am happy to say I had no side effects! The Radiation Therapists and support staff at Duke University Hospital were the best. They made 30 traveling days seem a lot more tolerable and I hate to say it, but it will be nice not to have to see them every day.
