Hi @ed580. Hopefully someone can respond to you with personal experience, but in the meantime, here is some information about proton therapy- http://www.mayoclinic.org/departments-centers/radiation-oncology/proton-beam-therapy/about. Hope this helps!

I completed proton beam therapy at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN on August 7, 2015. I was officially the 7th patient to complete treatment “ring the bell” in their new center. I was also the very first at Mayo Clinic to receive both standard radiation (2007) and proton beam radiation (2015) for my recurrent brain tumor. I am very open to answering any questions!
