i just finished my brachytherapy came out of hospital yesterday. Found it really tough but ive done it! Im feeling really weak and poo today. Sorry if too much info but can anyone give advice for the back passage that is what im struggling with since the immodium has worn off coming out of hospital its really sore and painful and its putting me off eating even though i want to because i feel hungary and sicky but because i know ill get a tummy ache and will go. Really tough the nurse said these few weeks will feel bad but should get better after that
. Any ladies that can give advice welcomed? can i have a salt bath and sit in it now after coming out of hospital or best to just have a shower? When did the hormones and menopause start for ladies after treatment im just anticipating it and havent been given hormone replacement yet. Ive got my 6 week check booked in so far. Feeling really teary and emotional too and if one more person says 'your over the worst now you can move on and feel better' i might just scream. Just feel pretty bad at the moment. And feels like still lots more i have to face and recover, its the mental side of it aswell that is tough and still things and questions going round. on the positive the consultant came and saw me and said hes really pleased with my response so far and the tumour has shrunk right down and nearly gone. This last part of the treatment has to work and do its thing now so really happy to hear that and keeping really positive.
love Francesca xx
