Bowel cancer treatment and side effects

Kathy L

Starting radiotherapy.

Off today for the first of 5 blasts for a spine met that has caused weakness in Pauls' left arm. Would love to hear from anyone who can give us some advice on what to expect, tips and hints for the next week and beyond.

@Kathy L sorry to hear Paul is having problem's with a spine met affecting his left arm. There isn't much info regarding bony mets available but it might be worth posting your question on Charlotte's nurse's section for advice. I hope everything goes well and wish you and Paul all the best. :)


I’ve never had radiotherapy @Kathy L but just wanted to wish you both well with the weeks treatment.
