This booklet gives information about possible side effects affecting the bowel caused by pelvic radiotherapy that continue on from during treatment, or begin three months or more after treatment. It describes treatments that can help, ways of managing late effects and signposts to other sources of support.

This booklet does not have information about bladder late effects of pelvic radiotherapy. We have another booklet about this called Managing the bladder late effects of pelvic radiotherapy.
