    Radiation and chemotherapy together


    Chemo was rough the first week because I got a sore on my tongue. The second round (last week) of chemo was fine. Radiation was rough weeks 5 and 6.

    Painless Experience: Agree

    Vaginal stenosis

    Side Effects

    I had chemo brain, lost a lot of hair due to the chemo, a UTI in my final week of treatment and had to be hospitalized. Now I'm going through pelvic floor therapy because of scar tissue in my vagina from the radiation. Doesn't matter, I am just grateful to be a survivor.
