Symptoms following pelvic radiotherapy
For as many as 500,000 people the end of their cancer treatment doesn't mean the end of their cancer journey, with around 90,000 people experiencing chronic changes in lower gastrointestinal function including diarrhoea, faecal incontinence, urgency, flatulence, bleeding, hernia, adhesions, strictures, pain and fistula. BSG and Macmillan are working together to ensure those involved in the potential treatment and care of people with these issues are equipped with the relevant resources and information to support their patients. Macmillan are also working to empower patients to raise these often debilitating and embarrassing issues with health care professionals.
- BSG Practice guidance on the management of acute and chronic gastrointestinal problems arising as a result of treatment for cancer
- Guidance: The Practical Management of the Gastrointestinal Symptoms of Pelvic Radiation Disease
- Managing lower gastrointestinal problems after cancer treatment: A quick guide for health professionals
- Symptom checklist and toilet card
- Resource pack
- Macmillan's Consequences of Treatment programme
