    Radiation: The external beam radiation was awful I
    Didn't get burnt but I was really sick for
    A few weeks. I had 25 treatments
    One a day mon thru fri for five weeks
    Then two week break to get the side effects
    Under control before I started the internal
    Brachiotherapy (I can't spell lol) radiation
    I need three treatment. I have my third Tom
    It was awkward at first I mean I used to
    Be so shy and modest about my body and
    After so many exams it's easier but still
    Awkward to say the least. What they do is
    Put this rod or wand tube looking thinOg up
    The vagina so it touches the cervix and then
    Tie it to my legs and then this wire goes
    Thru the tube up to the top and puts a peice
    Of radiation to the cervix. U can't feel that
    It's just pressure it's awkward and
    Uncomfortable but not painful and I lay there
    For like 8 min and they take it out

    Radiation: Because of the cancer I had in the uterus and
    Since the uterus and bowels and bladder
    Are close to each other I had awful side
    Effects. I had diahrea for like three weeks straight
    And was really tired and didn't want to eat
    Lomotil worked a little but not well enough
