I had a meeting with my radiologist after today's treatment. It turns out that I shall be seeing him once a week, usually on Wednesdays. I gather that the primary purpose of these meetings will be for him to check on side effects. He told me that side effects tend to surface after three weeks. Mostly they have to do with "urgent and uncontrollable" needs to use the bathroom. He told me that my risk is low because the area being treated is so small, and I had been warned about this before the treatment began. I suppose I should appreciate his being thorough about this!
