Will side effects limit my activity?

Side effects might limit your ability to do some things. But what you can do will depend on how you feel. Talk to your doctor about this. Some patients are able to go to work or enjoy leisure activities while they get radiation therapy. Others find they need more rest than usual and can’t do as much. Your doctor may suggest you limit activities that might irritate the area being treated.
