HELP! I'm in extreme PAIN!

After my radical hysterectomy last march, I completed 6 months of Chemo and 2 months of radiation in December. Beginning 1 week before radiation ended, I have had extreme pain in my lower back and abdomen. I have no appetite for food (which is NOT ME!) and when I don't eat, I get very nauseous. So, I struggle down food and end up with stabbing pain in my lower abdomen. I can't win. I am 33 with 2 kids under 6 and I can't live with this pain. Where is this pain coming from and how can I make it stop (besides taking the massive drugs my Dr. perscribed)? Is anyone else having this problem?

Karyn, I am 9 weeks out of surgerrry and am having a lot of the same pain especially the stabbing on in the abdomen. I've had a catscan and no one seems to know what is causing it. I also have the lower back pain to the extreme. How do you do it with 2 children? I admire you because I do not think I could. I agree about the pain killers I hate taking them and have just been using Aleve it will take some of the edge off but at least you won't be doped up.

Dear Karyn,
My name is Carol. I've been in remission now for 10 years, but the day I found out that I had cervical cancer seems like yesterday. I started to hemorage and thats how they found out I had it. I'm not a person that goes to the doctor alot. But if I kept up with check ups my cancer would of never been as bad as it was. I was in Roswell Park Cancer Hospital for 2 months. I was never on chemo but I did take chemo pills. I had 3 months of radiation and was like you No Appetite and when I did eat I got sick to my stomach. lol Just the opposite of you. I had to have 2 implants to dissolve the turmor. Things do get better Karyn. Try eating is small portions, that helped me. Try a warm bath for the pain, sometimes that helps. Keep in touch ok and let me know how your doing.
