    That is great news. My tumor was 5 cm. I got low dose radiation. 3 weeks, every weekday (15 doses). I was literally in the place 15 minutes. They marked me with 5 dot sized tatoo's so they could get the same place. Got diarrhea, and nausia, but not much. When it was over, I felt good, like I was done with it. If you have any questions, let me know.

        CanMan -
        Looks like you are on a path that is very familiar to myself and others on this site. I also opted for the radiation option for the peace of mind knowing that we were doing all we could to knock this out. The side effects mentioned in another post are fairly standard and will pass a few weeks after treatments finish.

        Let us know if you have any questions. But know that you are on the right path and there is light at the end of this tunnel. Stay strong.
