Default Radiation Therapy for Palliative Care

My ~4 year old female hedgehog Hazel has been dealing with various cancerous lumps for the past year, some were surgically removed but 2 large inoperable ones remain near her back legs; the oncologist recommended radiation therapy to hopefully help her be comfortable for 3-6 months. He also said there's not much info about radiation on hedgehogs so I'm very concerned about the side effects including diarrhea and kidney damage. I'm trying to balance out the options, my focus is her comfort and dignity; she is still eating well, drinking, using the bathroom normally, and being very sweet as always. Please if anyone has experience with radiation for palliative care or radiation in general, please let me know, thank you.
