    No. Radiation therapy is specific to the area being treated, it will not affect your stomach. You may feel tired, and your skin will feel burned after a few weeks of treatment, but you won't lose your hair or feel sick to you stomach the way that you do from chemo.

      This is not necessarily true...if radiation on left side, where stomach is, you could feel some nausea. I do.

    I had 30 consecutive radiation treatments for breast cancer and I didn't have problems with vomiting. I did blister though.

    You shouldn't. Radiation isn't that bad. No real effects for me except having small area that remains "sunburned" during the treatment. And maybe a little tired, but not too much.

    I had 30 radiation treatments and I did not vomit. I did get really tired. Take lots of vitamins.
