Just wondered if anyone has experienced hip pain, so bad at times I can barely walk? I finished all treatment July 2013 and was fine (my hips were fine at least) until about 6 -7 weeks ago when I started to get an ache in my left hip. This got progressively worse & became really painful & hurt with every step, it even hurt when I sneezed. Painkillers just about took the edge off it but it still persists and in the last week, strangely, it has moved from the left hip to my right with evern greater severity.
It has got me worried that something sinister is going on as not only have I got the hip pain which is new, I have also had episodes of urinary incontinence which started about May this year. This only seems to happen overnight however and after the first episode back in May I wear a pad at night. Since my rad. hyst. the sensation to pee has never come back to me so I don't even know I'm doing it, it doesn't waken me so I always go to bed prepared as it were. My mind is working overtime now and starting to relate these 2 problems to each other, somehow connected? I have seen my Oncologist for a regular check-up and she sent me for an xray there & then and also referred me for a more detailed bone density scan which is later this month. She said that radiotherapy can cause fractures in the pelvis but until this is confirmed my stress levels are going up. As yet I've had no results from the first xray and as time goes on my mind is working overtime.
I wondered if any of you ladies have experienced similar, and can reassure me in any way?
