Cervical pain from radiotherapy

Just finished my first week of radiotherapy. While the radiotherapy itself is painless, I’ve started getting some pain in my cervix. I suppose when you think about what radiotherapy is doing there it shouldn’t be surprising, but nobody mentioned it to me among the long list of side-effects. Is it normal?

Hi @_Suki , i too have just finished my first week and begin my second today. Like yourself i have also had what i can only describe as similar to period pain but also bouts of pressure like something was going to fall out of me (if only it was that easy). I thought id done ok until friday and Saturday when the fatigue and then nausea hit me so going to speak to my team this week to sort extra meds hopefully.

Hope youve had a comfortable weekend
