Hi, I need some prayers. I’m having my 1st radiation treatment for the 1 ½ inch tumor on my vaginal cuff. It is in between my bladder and colon. My CA had gone from 241 to 865 in a month. They stopped my chemo. I will be having radiation everyday for 4 weeks, except Sat. and Sun. I heard that the side effects can be worse than chemo in some women. I was wondering if it shrinks the tumor, can the tumor start to grow again after treatment. I know there are a lot of women who had tumors shrunk by chemo. Unfortunately the chemo’s I was on did nothing.I'm praying so hard that this radiation does the trick and I finally get a break.
