My wife is well into her second week of pelvic radiation. The chemo has been kind to her, but I see that the radiation is starting to build up in her. It obvious that her uterus is not liking being placed into the microwave xray or what ever it is and is not going down without a fight. How long will she experience the cramps and bloating? Any suggestions on what she can do to help wtih this side effect?
My wife did speak to the radiation Onc today and they mentioned that these really bad PMS type issues are normal and that she will have them for awhile. Along with that its time for her cycle also. They did prescribe some sort of bloating medication that I need to go get tonight.
Not looking forward to early menopause, but we will cross that bridge once the cancer bridge has been crossed.
