Can I go for a night out and have a few alcoholic drinks during radiotherapy? I don't want to do anything to effect it but also would like to have some escapism!!

    I don't think alcohol will effect your radiation. My advise to you is to try and keep your life as normal as possible and if you enjoy going out and having a few drinks then do it. And you are right, we all on such a rugged road trip and need a break from it sometimes. Enjoy and good luck.

      I agree with her I have a glass of wine through chemo. I still must live and we need to do things normal. Girl enjoy your life

    My radiologist smiled and said a little wine could be good but don't get sloshed. :-D

    My husband was actually the one who asked my radiation oncologist about alcohol during radiation. We had an escape weekend planned and wanted to enjoy good food and good wine. My doctor said to enjoy but not to overdo it.
