My sister just got diagnosed

Hi my has cancer. Her doctor wants her to start radiation. They surgically removed the cancer and said they got it all. I am concerned about the radiation effecting her immune system and actually causing more cancer. Anyone else afraid of radiation side effects?

I'm sorry to hear of your sister's diagnosis, but YOU have come to the right place for help and encouragement. I have not had radiation, so can not help you with that concern. It would be helpful if you give us more specific information like what type of cancer and the treatment plan for your sister and others will be on shortly to give you abundant help and love. and a special thank you for being there for your sister.

What kind of cancer does your sister have? Did she see a gyn/onc for her hysterectomy and will he be overseeing her radiation?

I would recommend that she join here for her hysterectomy support and cancer care. That way she can ask all the questions she has as far as recovery and treatment.

What type of cancer and what stage/grade was it? And what kind of radiation are they planning? I've had radiation as have a lot of other sisters on this sight. If you or your sister can provide more detailed info, we can help a lot more.

I agree with Jane that your sister should join, if for no other reason than to ask questions. That's why I originally joined and the women here are so awesome and supportive. If for some reason your sister can't join, you can relay the info for her. You are very special to be helping and supporting your sister like this.
