  title={Towards eliminating pelvic bone pain after radiation therapy among long-term gynecological cancer survivors},
  author={A. C. Waldenstr{\"o}m},
Aim: To investigate the prevalence of self-reported symptoms after pelvic radiation therapy among long-term gynecological cancer survivors, with special focus on pelvic bone pain, how it affects the daily life of the women and the relationship to absorbed doses. [] Key Method Data were collected by means of a study-specific, validated, postal questionnaire with 351 questions reflecting symptoms from the pelvic organs including demographics, co-morbidities, psychological and quality-of-life issues.
