Suggest remedy for stage 2 cervical cancer

I am a 42 year old woman who was diagnosed with stage 2 cervical cancer on April 1, 2010. I started radiation treatment and chemo a month later. I received 5 radiation treatments and 1 chemo treatment a week for 7 weeks. At the end of those treatments, I was given a cat scan and was told that the cervical cancer metastisized to my lungs. I no longer received radiation treatments but kept doing my chemo treatments afterward once a month until about March of 2011.

During October of 2010, I noticed a new pain developing in my abdomen. Found out tha I had developed radial colitis. I started meds and treatment for that. Shortly after that, in about February of 2011, I noticed that I wasnt able to control my bladder or my bowels at nite. I have never had a problem with neither one even as a child.

Why is this happening? Why can I not control it as well as I did before? Is there anything I can do to help this problem?

By the way, I am 5 ft. 11 and 155 lbs. And as of now, I am in remission.

welcome to Health care magic.
1.Cevical cancer depending on the stage it does gives different symptoms.
2.In advanced stages when the timer mass stars involving the bladder, ureters, and adjacent bowel, will cause such symptoms.
3.Visit your doctor and get initially an ultrasound and further CT for further evaluation.
4.The only remedy is followup after any symptoms arises and act accordingly.
Anything to ask ? do not hesitate. Thank you.
