Good Morning Everyone
Well I completed my eight day of radiation yesterday. Only 20 left and I am wondering and scared to death what my vagina is going to look like at the end. On day 7 I went to the restroom at work and thought I would pass out. The burning was terrible. I had some good ole vaseline so I put that on and it took care of the problem. Went to my treatment and told my doctor and he gave me some creams to use. He warned me to make sure it was not on when I took my next treatment. He gave me, Aquaphor which I have seen on here alot and he also gave me Carrington Moisture Barrier Cream with Zinc. The zinc cream is great and it stays on.
Yesterday morning I got up and had some pain in my right hip. It was gone by the time I went to work. Last night I woke up with pain in both hips. I had to take a pain pill to get back to sleep. When I woke this morning it was back. I walked it off but it took about 2 hours for it to go alway with the help of some tyonol.
So this pain in my hips.....what is going on with that? I have read on other post that some have problems but I thought it was later on. Is there anything that I can to do to prevent this from happening or is it something that I will have to start taking pain meds for again?
