I finished radiation and chemo just before Christmas...the week after i had some lower left side pain , it only lasted a few days so i never really worried too much about it....but it has come back , its kinda a throbbing pain, not really painful but if feels like its constantly there....i go for a check up this week to see if my cancer is gone and talk about a hysterectomy
I was just wondering if anyone else experienced this?

I also had lower left side pain following chemo. and rad. Mine ended up being scar tissue in my intestines from the radiation. The pain would get worse depending on what I ate. DOn't know if this is anyway related to your pain, but just thought I would put my two cents in! Hope it helps.

I remember, it was a great feeling for me to finish chemo and radiation. After a radical hysterectomy, during chemo & radiation, I did have a pain in the lower left side of my abdomen. I know you haven't had surgery, so I don't know if its the same reason for the pain. I kept joking to the doctor asking him if he'd left his scissors in there. I didn't find out what it was, but it did go away after a few months. Good luck with everything! I am now a 4 year cervical cancer survivor, and I'm grateful for every day.
