Im 12 weeks post treatment n still up 2 to 3 times a night to the loo n i still have a nephostomy taking some of urine away so cud b more without that is this normal x
Hi Helpme. I have similar trouble, althouth at 6 months post treatment I now have more good nights than bad (a good night being getting up just once). It has gradually settled down. My consultant suggested it's more hormonal, with a bit of added treatment 'disturbance' thrown in. Apparently the hormone that lets us hold in urine at night, and not wake up if our bladders start to fill, stops or becomes less at menapause. Interestingly, my sister has recently had a natural menapause and has the same issue - getting up 3 times a night. I had chemorads and brachy, so have been catapulted into menopause, are you the same - sorry, I've forgotten what treatment you had? I didnt have a nephostomy though, so I'm not sure how that works - can you run it past your nurse to put your mind at rest? I hope it improves for you, disturbed nights are not fun!
I had chemo rads n brachy 2 im gonna ask my consultant when i see her im only 28 so hope it not early menopause
Helpme, I'm pretty sure that the radiotherapy to your pelvis would've sent you into menopause.
I'm up more in the night now cos I'm drinking more.
Pelvic radiation n chemo can both trigger early menopause as they can damage your ovaries
