Hi friends, It is my time to ask a question again. As suspected my ovarian cancer has re-emerged again on my sacral ligament after 8 months. It was shown on CT to be a 3.5cm mass with a 3.5cm cystic component below this. So at times I feel as though I am sitting on a squashed plum. Fortunately this time, the rest of the CT was clear and my medical onocologist has referred me for radiotherapy. I am just wondering if any of you have had radiotherapy alone and what side effects locally you have had. I am planning to go to Europe on 20th June and wondering how sore my nether region is going to be. I am wondering if they can radiate from the back or side to avoid burning the small bowel. As usual I will be using my natural therapies to help. I have to practice what I preach.
Any tips on what I could ask for to help the situation. Sue.
