My partner was diagnosed with Stage 4a Cervical cancer. She was treated with 25 external radiation with Chemo once a week and 5 internal radiation. As far as we know right now all looks good. She has a fistula that makes it's so she has no control over her bladder. Her tumor as about 6 inches and when right into her bladder causing the fistula. It also pinched her kidney tubes and needed stints put in. We finished treatment in July and she has lots of back pain. Which from what I have read is from the Radiation. What my questions is, she has like contraction or cramps in her lower belly, is this normal for after radiation/chemo? Does anybody else experience this?
Thanks a bunch!
