In brief: Low fiber
Radiation treatment for cervical cancer includes treatment of the pelvis.
One of the more common symptoms that can develop during treatment is loose stools. Often times a diet high in fiber can make this worse and so we often recommend a low fiber diet. In regards to whether a certain diet can improve the radiation treatment we don't really know the answer to that.
