I would appreciate hearing from anyone that has gone thru vaginal radiation. My name is Nancy and I had a marble size vaginal tumor and 2 lymph nodes removed in Jan 2005. The biopsy on the incision tissue and the lymph nodes, came back "clean." However, 6 weeks later my surgeon called and reccommended 5 days a week, 5 weeks of radiation. I am scared to have that done, because of the possibility of injuring other vital organs in that area. Like perferations of the uretha,bladder,rectum,intestines etc. If you could let me know if you had radiation, what effects you had, and how long did you feel ill?
