In brief: It varies
Side effects from radiotherapy can be classified as acute or delayed.
Acute side effects (hair loss, fatigue) usually begin during the course of radiotherapy and gradually improve in the weeks after treatment (usually a few months for hair loss). Delayed side effects are far less common and can occur months or even years after radiotherapy.
