After radiotherapy

What are the steps after the course of radiotherapy has finished? How lone do you wait for the results? 

  • Hello and thank you for updating us on Mum.

    Now that the womb cancer treatment has finished there will be a period of recovery. Radiotherapy in particular is a treatment that continues to work in the body even once the actual visits for treatment stop. Once this time has passed and mum has recovered the team will make her aware of the next stage of follow up which may include a scan.

    This can be hard as this is more waiting, but this needs to be a period of recovery for Mum and her body. It can be hard when supporting someone with cancer, I hope you have support at this time.

    Take care and you may find it helpful to talk things through with one of the nurses on our helpline.  The number to call is Freephone 0808 800 4040 and the lines are open from 9 am till 5 pm, Monday to Friday.
