Re: What's the worst side effects of radiation have you experienced?

I had brachytherapy radiation (internal placement of the radioactive elements) it was really not bad, except it was July and I could not shower or really bathe for that week, so I was a bit stinky, but the medical folks were very gracious about it. The balloon catheter was a bit uncomfortable by the end of the week (could not wear a seat belt, etc...) but again, completely doable.
