Anyone have scar tissue caused by cobalt treatment years ago?

I didn't have cobalt, but both of my grandmothers did in the fortys and fiftys.  One grandmother had abdominal adheashions and scaring but the other didn't.  Most of the one who did have scaring had a lot of bowel problems, but she lived to be almost 87.  Don't know if this helps or causes more questions!  Best, debrajo

Please read http://csn.cancer.org/node/164201, it's a discussion of long-term side effects of cobalt radiation.
