I've had 37 radiation treatments. They ended in late May. By June I was experiencing lower back pain. My oncologist said it was not from radiation. Now the pain has gone to my hips and down my legs. I feel so weak - and often the pain makes me nauseous. Has anyone else experienced this kind of pain from radiation? I was initially very afraid of the whole radiation thing - and at one point stopped - but went back - now I'm so mad at myself for continuing and ending up a cripple! I've always been very physical - work out 5-6 times a week - even when I was in treatment (Chemo & radiaiton). Now I can barely put socks on.
