I have been done with chemo and radiation since the end of July/first of August. Around the end of August/beginning of September, I started having a discharge. I went to my PCP and she did a urine test and found WBC and RBC in the urine. She prescribed CIPRO antibiotic and after 4 days of the 7, she advised me to stop taking it and to come in for a visit. At that time she did another urine test and found more WBC and RBC in the sample. She examined and found what she believed were cysts, one just inside the urethral opening and two just inside the vaginal opening. The discharge has never stopped. She referred me to a gyn, which resulted in her not seeing the same things the PCP did. Anyway, so no I believe I have cysts in those aforementioned areas, and now the discharge has changed from thick clear, to yellow, to green, and now it is showing some red, as evidenced on the pantiliners I have to wear daily and while I'm sleeping.
Has anyone else with anal cancer, having gone through two 48-hour chemo treatments a month apart, and 5 weeks of radiation with a 2-week break at week 4 because the groin and pubic area were so badly burned, ever experienced what I have described with this discharge from the urethra?? Oh, and I've been having some mild cramping in the low abdominal/pelvic area and I do not have a uterus or ovaries. I have had my PET and CT scans done and will see the Onco dr on Friday 9/24, but I am seriously concerned there is really something wrong. Especially if no one else has had the same or similar symptoms after treatment.
