Your discharge might be unrelated to your cc. Dont worry too much. What stage was yours?

I was 2b, 6 chemo,25 radiotherapy sessions and 1 long pulsed rate brachytherapy (18 hours)

I am 13 months post treatment and still have a watery discharge.

my oncologist says this is quite normal- as many women have discharge as those who are really dry (tmi sorry) 

as your cervix has now essentially had a very severe burn from the radiation, the natural way some women react is to produce more watery discharge trying to heal.

i have it worse after dilation too.

the aches and pains I do get , not too bad, but again my oncologist says it’s just tightness from the radiotherapy that has affected the surrounding tissue.

i do a lot of stretching and that helps, and I do still attend Zumba , perhaps not quite as vigorously as I did pre treatment,and I ache like mad after, but I love the feeling of dancing and the music.

everyone gets worried around the checkups, but personally, I would rather catch it sooner than wait for any recurrence to be festering away and spreading.

Thank you moushouse, you have just basically described what is happening with myself. I am considering joining the gym to help with stiffness and make myself feel better about myself.

ill go for my check up and I will have been worrying over nothing

I have watery discharge too and a smell. I end up getting a mri to investigate further but I’m still clear - 5 months.

Well had my examination he said he couldn’t see or feel anything but he is sending me for a mri scan just to be on the safe side. So just waiting for that to come through, strangely enough I’m not as nervous as I was
