About this booklet

The booklet explains how women can manage the late effects of pelvic radiotherapy. These late effects are side effects that appear after pelvic radiotherapy. Not everyone gets late effects. And if you do, it is not common to have all of them. They can appear months or even years after treatment has finished. For some people, they may become permanent. They can also vary in severity.

There is also information for carers, family members and friends.
