My 79 year old mom just went through the treatment from hell that all of you have experienced. God bless all of you. She is 3 weeks post treatment and her burns are getting much better as well as her diarrhea. EXTREMELY tired though. However, she is experiencing extreme pain in her abdominal area - doesn't seem to be localized, radiating sometimes more upper, sometimes lower. But needs oxy to control the pain.Her CT scan showed a thickening of the lower intestine which they say is probably from the radiation and time will heal. An endoscopy showed some "abnormal" mucous and they took some biopsss. Has anyone else ever experienced this? She was Stage 1 when she was diagnosed. Any help or insight that you can give will be appreciated. Thanks and God Bless.
