What were your side effects of pelvic radiotherapy ?

Hi there,

I'm 29and was diagnosed with cervical cancer 4 months ago. I've completed 3 round of chemo, had surgery and unfortunately one of the removed lymph nodes tested positive for cancer. So my next option is intensive chemo/radio for 6 weeks to eliminate eall risk of it coming back OR I can do nothing and hope that I'm cancer free and monitor.

This is 'Real' back again

Hello, 2 years ago I was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer and thank goodness the chemotherapy and radiation got rid of it but not before nearly killing me.

Got nearly 2 more years with my two boys aged 11 and 13. Thought it was over except for three monthly endoscopic tests.

That was until 20 March this year when I was told to have a pet scan. There they found the thing was back, bigger and meaner than ever, My tumour is in my oesophagus and of course they can do nothing.

My mum has been in and out of hospital quite regularly of late. Having blood transfusions and antibiotics. Drs saying the bleed is from the mass in her bowel. Surgery is not an option. I am finding it very hard as every time we go in to the hospital, she is so unwell. It's like well, is this it? Is this the end? And then they give her a few bags of blood and antibiotics, and then, she is bouncing off walls again.... It's just getting harder and harder...it's like losing her each time she goes to hospital. So mentally(emotionally) draining...

Hi all... Well. This is my first entry. My mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2014. She had numerous surgeries that year. Cancer metastasised to her lung. Surgery to remove that. Now, we are facing a new mass, again in bowel, and again in other lung and also in liver.
