High dose radiotherapy


Hi my husband has been diagnosed four months now, he was at the stage where all the tests were done and waiting for his treatment options. He had to go into hospital as his tumour had totally blocked his oesophagus. He now has a feeding tube and tomorrow he is having a high dose of radiotherapy to try to shrink the tumour. Could anyone advise what side effects etc to expect and any other advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you
