I had expected problems with loose stool to the point I mapped out bathrooms for my hour and a half drive each way. Thankfully, nowhere near the need.
I managed to work 4 hours each day I had my treatments, and that was on top of my 3 hours of driving. All for a 16 second treatment. Yes, it was tiring, but both the RT and the work were necessary for me physically, and mentally.
