I am 40 and was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer last Aug. I have had 3 rounds of chemo and a radical hyst. My doctor now suggests 6 weeks of external radiation. I have read a lot but was wanting to know what you have experienced with radiation. Some of the side effects are with your bladder and colon- how bad is it. Did they give you medication to help? Did you have to strech your vaginal area? Was intercourse painful after radiation was done. Did the radiaiton make you tired? How did you feel after the treatments? After all was done how long did it take to feel better or feel "yourself" again?
Please let me know as I have to make a decision in a week or so.
