I had some back pain and told my Dr at my last check up. She said it was probably just radiotherapy side effects but that she'd send me for a scan to make sure.
I went for the scan and it confirmed that my back pain was just side effects (by the time I got them back it had started to go away on its own). Unfortunately the scan they took showed changes from my first post-treatment scan. They took me into day surgery to take some biopsies as they couldn't be sure that the changes were just scar tissue or a reoccurance. So I'm just waiting on these results, which has been made worst by the fact my brother in law has just been diagnosed with kidney cancer. :(
Also, have any of you who had Radio/chemo/brachy had any peeing problems? A few weeks ago I started peeing weird. Like it's coming out at high pressure, like when you put your thumb over the end of a hose - it can also be a bit nippy. I've also been getting a side stitch like cramp in my side if I try and do too much walking/bending.I told the nurses when I went in for my biopsy and they tested for infections but it was fine.
I vaguely remember a side effect being scar tissue and damage to the bladder, so I'm guessing it's that but I will be telling my Dr.
I hope everyone is well
