I have colon cancer and recently had radiation therapy to my pelvis. I had my last radiation on Dec 22 and I'm now having an odorous (sorry if this is gross) discharge from my vagina, is this a side effect? Should i call my oncologist, radiation oncologist or gyn? Any help would be great. THanks!

The radiation kills off a lot of good cells as well as the bad. It sounds like your body is shedding these, but do not mess around with this. Call your docs asap! Good luck.

I had 33 external rad to pelvic area - uterine cancer. I had bowel issues nothing in the vaginal area. Yes definitely, if you've not done this yet, call your doc.

Good luck!
