I had my second and last brachy radiation over a week ago on Sept. 24. To back up a little more, during the last couple of weeks of my external radiation, I had what felt like the beginning feeling of a urinary tract infection (UTI). Just a little of that burning feeling, but nothing bothersome.
Has anyone else had this problem and how long does it last? I would think that a fried urethra would heal in about 4 days but it's been longer than that and I'm getting concerned.
I also have a little bit of urinary incontinence. Just a dribble on my underpants once a day or so. Anyone else have that one? I read that the incontinence thing could be due to nerve damage of the sphincter muscle below the bladder.
