How do I manage my radiation poisoning on a daily basis?

Radiation poisoning is a potentially life-threatening illness that requires close supervision by experienced medical professionals. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may need to be hospitalized and possibly isolated from others. Isolation is important to prevent contaminating others and to protect you from infection while your immune system is weak. Whether you are in the hospital or stable enough to return home, it is important for you to adhere to your doctor's recommendations about medications, isolation, and follow-up care. Furthermore, if you are receiving medical radiation treatments, you should learn to recognize the symptoms of radiation poisoning so that you can seek medical attention as soon as possible.
