I suffer from abdominal cramping that the doctor believes is associated with IMRT radiation to the pelvic area. Since I have gone to Proton and only the prostate is targeted I am getting better and the doctor believes it will be back to normal in a week or so.
I wish your uncle better times after his radiation treatments are over.
