Radiation. To do or not to do? - 3XSurvivorGal

Decision Point Associated with Rare Cancers. Posted on September 1, 2012 View this journey (10 Experiences)

Agreed to the 3 internal vaginal cuff treatments. Wanted more time to consider external beam pelvic radiation since I was concerned about collateral damage to healthy organs. We also had a family vacation planned and the 25 day radiation treatment program could not be interrupted. One of the Rad Onc nurses shared her personal story with me, assured me that the "severe" side effects I was worried about were "old news". So...OK...let's do it all! (Keep in mind this was all "optional" to begin with. But now doctors were encouraging me to get the full treatment since I didn't tolerate the chemo.)
