After 6 chemo treatments for Uterine Cancer Stage IV, my CA 125 has gone down from 825 before surgery and chem to 7 and my PET CT Scan just reported "normal". Now my Radiologist wants to do 3 treatments of internal radiation. I think it is just prevention of possible reoccurance. I am not sure I want to do it after finding out the side effects of burning vagina areas causing burning during urination, vaginal dryness, etc. And then having to do vaginal excercises 3 times a week and inserting an item in my vagina 3 times a week for the rest of my life! They said because otherwise the scar tissue will close up your vigina!
Did this happen to you? How was your experience with the internal radiation? Would you do it again or not?
