am a new member, inquiring on behalf of my mom who was diagnosed with 3B cervical cancer this spring. She has undergone hsyterectomy and radiation/chemo. 3 months after treatment finished, she began spotting in addition to having stomach pains--this has persisted for the past few weeks. Am very worried about the spotting--has anyone else had similar symptoms/experience? Dr said it could be related to vaginal dryness post radiation, or something worse. I am very much hoping that it's the former versus a symptom of recurrent cancer (and am scared that it could recur so soon after initial treatment). She will have Pet scan, but I would much appreciate if any one out there has any thoughts to share.
Many thanks to all!
