I finished my radiotherapy 6 months ago. About 3 months after I started to get either very constipated or have really bad diahorrea. The docs prescribed me normacol and peppermint. This worked for a while but as soon as I stop the normacol I go from on extreme to the other. I also have really bad pains and a burning sensation in my bowel. I am not having any bleeding but sometimes there is a discharge when I am constipated. When I do manage to have a bowel movement it is very thin and long (sorry if tmi
I am also having really bad back and hip pain. I wondered if the lower back pain was because of my bowels. Does anyone else have pains in their hips after radiotherapy as my doc didn't seem convinced that radiotherapy could cause that.
