I am writing to educate myself and my mother on the side effects of pelvic radiation therapy. My mom was diagnosed in November 2009 with Endometrial (Uterine) cancer. She had a complete hysterectomy in December in which they discovered that the cancer was at Stage 3. She went through 6 months of chemotherapy and was doing well. In September of this year the CT scans picked up a very small tumour on her pelvis. She then did 6 weeks of external radiation treatment and finished in early October. A month or so after the treatment she started having burning sensations and pain in her legs and hips. She is now in severe pain, especially down into her legs. I've been researching on the internet and it seems that this is quite common. One of the most common side effects that keeps approaching is Insufficiency Fractures. If anyone has any information or can share they're stories and tips with me, it would be greatly appreciated! The doctors have no idea why she is experiencing this pain, and have put her on pain medication. She has a CT scan booked in a couple of weeks - we are scared and there is not a day that goes by that i dont pray for her recovery! Any help would be so great! Thanks for reading! My thoughts and prayers for anyone going through any type of health problem...!
