I was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer February 28, 2000. I am now in remission after radiation and chemo. I still have some health problems like kidneys that only function at 30% of normal and a weak bladder. I did not have a hyterectomy. I do have a question. I know that all of the radiation (both internal and external) has a big effect on your body. I have scars from radiation burns on my backside. I am currently single but am very interested in someone who knows all about my cancer and takes it in stride. Can anyone tell me if sex is possible? I am afraid that after all of the radiation, it will be painful. I am afraid to even try. I am putting off getting close to anyone because of this fear. Can anyone help with an answer?
