so I finished treatment 15 weeks ago. I have my first post treatment scan this Thursday, was supposed to be wk 12 but was delayed due to hospital backlogs.
for the last 8 wks I've had chronic lower back pain and griping stomach pains, so I've convinced myself I'm going to be told my cancers treatment hasn't worked and it's spread everywhere.
I know this is irrational to automatically think this way and "be more positive" (been told that a thousand times by people who have never had cancer). I think between the pain and the scanxiety, I'm going out my mind.
My oncologist called me back after 5 wks of trying to get in touch with her, and did an exam but said she can't see much because I have so much scar tissue, but I do look seem very tender and shouldn't be this sore so far after treatment so that's added to my worry.
Not sure why I'm writing as I know the only thing I can do is wait, but any experience of severe back pain post chemo rads would be appreciated, especially to know how long this pain will go on?
