On Wednesday I finished 5 weeks of External Radiation but have been dealing with an awful side effect and want to know if others had this happen as well. I woke up last Tuesday and went in for my early morning radiation but soon after it I started getting the symptoms of a UTI. On Wednesday for my last treatment I was put on medicine for a UTI but it doesn't seem to be working and now I wonder if it really isn't a UTI but more damage done to my bladder from the Radiation. Did any of you experience this and if so how soon did it go away?
On Monday I will call the doctor and see what he says but I would like to hear from anyone else that experienced this. I really hope this is a temporary side effect because it is very difficult to deal with. I have a constant feeling of needing to go the bathroom.
