Hi and welcome to HCm
it can hurt because afte radioth there are abdominal adhesions and fibrosis thath may occur and it will lead to abdominal discomfort. you should eat easier food and more frequently but in smaller meals. also you should do abdominal imaging test to see is there any bowel obstructiuion.. Wish you good health. Regards
