Internal radiation - Wonderland

Radiation Associated with Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer. Posted on September 10, 2012 View this journey (4 Experiences)

I just had 2 bouts of brachytherapy that I figure gave me about an extra 2% chance of survival with 1/2% chance of bad complications, a worthwhile risk. The doctor told me it was an additional 14%, but I read the literature (I have access to all journals) and was horrified at how much harm radiation does, I am so glad I didn't get pelvic or more extensive radiation! Chemotherapy has been proven to be so much more effective in this type of cancer that I can't believe it's even allowed to give extensive radiation.
