a new radiation sister!

HI mindy
It's great that you found this site. It helped to keep me sane during my treatments. I also had 6 weeks of external radiation just like you but my internal radiation was 4 treatments, 4 hrs each, 2 days apart from each other. And I had chemo to boot. I had the chemo because the cancer was about 50% through my cervix by the time I had surgery. The side effects were not too bad .....well maybe the last week was a little hard but I got through it just fine. I beleive that my positive attitude had a lot to do with it. I told myself I would not have any side effects from my treatment and guess what I even kept all of my hair through the chemo ( I can't say as much for my pubic hair.......we'll just say that it felt the radiation and jumped ship! ). But now I don't have to worry about a bikini line for a while . I did have cramping a little after my first internal treatment (but you should have seen the xrays and the equipment they put inside of me ) and also I told by my doctor that the implantation of the gold seed may also cause it. As for the healing....mabey because I am so young, I have NO scarring from the radiation and I was told that I was fully healed and would not need to use a dialaitor. 's and god bless....youv'e come to the right place to get your questions and concerns answered!
