    I just finished 35 treatments. I get very tired each day, and just take a rest when I can. The first 3 weeks were pretty easy, but became more difficult as the skin became burned and tender. Each person is different. Speak often to the doctors and they can stay up on any side effect that presents. Good Luck!! Keep the faith!

    I had 30 treatments and finished the first of August. Towards the end, I was really tired but you need to keep going. Some folks that went through it with me also had burns. Take plenty of vitamins and use the lotions they give you on the affected areas. I hope this helps. Good luck and God bless you.
