Odd brachytherapy side effect

Hi ladies,
I started my brachytherapy treatment yesterday. I’ll be having 5 total treatments of 6 gray dose, each.
I came home last night from the first session feeling pretty normal, aside from some irritation from the urinary catheter, and some soreness.
When I went pee last night, I noticed I was basically “queefing” from my vagina and it sounded wet, like maybe it was some gel or lubricant leftover from the procedure?
It happened again this morning when I went pee.
Anyone else have this side effect? Is this normal or is it a sign of something more serious?

I’ve already messaged my radiation oncologist about it. I just wanted to know of other experiences with this. Tell me I’m not alone!?

I’m sorry to say, but after brachy you might find that all manner of things come out of your vag. I was convinced I was permanently incontinent because I swear I had more than a month of liquid pee esque discharge. It did finally stop and now alls golden (sorry about the pun!:joy:)

You’re not alone. During my brachy I had an insane amount of discharge every day. There was discharge when I coughed, discharge when I stood up, sat down. I had to change large sized pads at least 3 times a day. My oncologist said it happens and it could sometimes mean the tumor is melting, which is a good thing.
