…about Pelvic Radiation Disease

Most people will experience some side effects during and immediately after radiotherapy finishes. Symptoms that start or continue 3 months or more after pelvic radiotherapy could be Pelvic Radiation Disease (PRD).

The ‘Let’s Talk’ programme is open to anyone who is 3 months post pelvic radiotherapy treatment and living with any PRD symptoms.

  • Do you feel constipated or need to rush to the toilet, feel a lack of control of your bladder and/or bowels, or have rectal bleeding?
  • Do you suffer with wind?
  • Do you have pain in the pelvic area or feel fatigued?
  • Do you experience swelling or sore skin?

Do you feel that you don’t understand what is happening to your body? Are you wondering if its “just you” or have you been made to feel you are imagining it?

Throughout the Let’s Talk programme, we will discuss what PRD is, what it means for you and the ongoing support the Pelvic Radiation Disease Association can offer. During the programme there will be Ask the Expert sessions for any questions you would like to put to an experienced professional.

The programme sessions are held online and last just over an hour each week and will run for 5 consecutive weeks. Session groups will be small to allow everyone to feel comfortable and secure.
