I had radiation for 6 weeks ending last October. I've had quite a bit of damage from radiation. I  had uterine cancer , and had bowel, bladder , and vagina damage, they think that's what it's from ! I just had 2 biopsies today and have a spot from radiation, Dr. said ! This is my second time with uterine cancer ! I had the highest dosage a person can have , and can't have anymore !

I was diagnosed with GBM 3 years ago last week.  All my MRIs have been clear post surgery. 

I still tire easily and get headaches, most certainly from the radiation.  It feels like a light version of what I was feeling during my 35 days of radiation treatment and it has never really gone away.  I pretty much have had headaches to some extent every day for the last 3 years.  It is my new "normal". I have an obnoxious one right now as I write this.

Nevertheless, I am still working and function not quite where I was pre-diagnosis but gratefully at a high level.

I looked at one of my recent MRIs with my NO and saw some wavy lines near my surgical cavity.  I asked him what they were and he said it was the results (i.e. damage) from the radiation treatment. So there you go.
