Hi, my mother completed radiation treatment Dec/10, but is still having to get up every hour in the night to urinate - and is constantly exhausted from lack of sleep. She also has discomfort/pain when urinating, and all the time has some degree of discomfort. Does anyone have any suggestions/remedies that she could try? The doctors do not seem to be able to offer any assistance. I would appreciate any advice very much.

Thank you.

Hi Marnier61:

I really don't have any suggestions to help your mom, except that it just might be time to get another Urologist/Oncologist's opinion, if you haven't already. I know that teaching university hospitals usually have more experience with bladder cancer. I wish you well.
