If You Are Having Radiation Therapy

Questions for the doctor:

  • What is the goal of this treatment?

  • How will the radiation be given?

  • How many treatments will I get? Over what period of time?

  • When will the treatment begin? When will it end?

  • How will I feel during radiation therapy?

  • What are the possible short-term and long-term side effects? What are some serious side effects I should report to the doctor? 

  • What are the chances treatment will be effective? How will we know if it's working?

  • Will I need other treatments as well? Are there any other treatment options? 

  • What can I do to prepare for treatment and to take care of myself during therapy?
