I am so relieved to have found this discussion group. So far I am an anal cancer survivor. Was diagnosed in July 2009 - then had surgery, chemo and radiation. I finished radiation in October 2009. I am having a problem with my hips not being limber at all. I have reduced flexibility and range of movement I used to be able to touch my toes, sit cross-legged on the floor, etc. My glutes, lower back and upper thigh muscles hurt every day. This week I started (without a doctor's advice) some physical therapy movements for hip replacement patients that I found on the internet. Is this normal? Will it always be this way?
I really appreciate everyone's input. Thank you.
