A yr ago having gone thru total hysterectomy, 6 rounds of chemo, 33 pelvic radiation, which ended August 1, '09. All tests -- blood, CAT-scans have been great thusfar. Noticing more and more achy muscles, especially after a nice walk or workout. Having a pain on/off in my right buttox which my chiropractor thinks is in sacroiliac area or could be arthritis??? I'm an avid work out gal and notice always needing lots of yoga stretches and more centralized in the sacroiliac area. Been doing some googling and see many posts about this area causing much pain and suggestings for toning down the running and hard pounding exercises, which I've been doing. Also, doing more stretches, but the proper ones.
Anyone found issues like this after their treatments? I'm especially thinking since I had radiation in pelvic area it's really dried out and on top of that, my bone density test last Feb, before treatments started showed "thinning in hip area".
I've got my 3 month checkup with oncologist in 2 weeks and he's not doing CAT-scan as I've been doing very well. Told me we'll go with the blood test and if my numbers aren't good, he'll suggest a scan. Should I call doc now and ask to do a test for pain in back area and ready for my meeting with him.....or just go on appt and then discuss my issues? He can then suggest the test or not.
Thanks for insight as I'm going back and forth and really not thinking of cancer...don't want to go there yet!
