Hi, this may be of use to anyone but was thinking of Pattie at this time. I know she mentioned starting treatment this week. The spray I used to ease the pain on my butt, groin area is called Dermoplast...it is usually given to women to spray on after childbirth and can be purchased over the counter at most pharmacies, I have even picked it up at Target. It comes in two strengths and I used the stronger one. Good luck to anyone going through treatment at this time, we are all thinking of you and praying for a smooth journey. As always,all in my prayers.

Thank you thank you thank you! I could not remember the name of the spray and I couldn't find the post where it was mentioned. I wrote it down now and am going to try and find some this week as I start my treatment tomorrow.
Thanks again!
Hugs and prayers
Pattie

Good luck as you begin your treatment tomorrow. You probably won't need them right away, but boxer shorts will come in handy.

Wouldn't it be nice if the radiation oncologist would give a list of things to use while going through treatment??? Although, it does sounds like some radiation oncologists were more helpful than mine. Just a thought...

I t would be nice, though some just seem better than others. My rad doc moved during my treatment and the new one was no where near as helpful as the first. I was lucky with some very educated and supportive techs though and if they didn't know the answer to a question I had , they always found out quickly for me. I like to think of all my docs, nurses, etc. as my employees....some are just better suited to work for me than others. So far I have not had to let anyone go, tho I am concerned about my GE (Gastroenterologist). I like feeling like all these professionals work FOR me! I have been truely lucky to have a team that I am very comfortable with. I sometimes worry about others moving or leaving for some reason and would dread having to get used to a new doctor after going through so much with the ones I have. Hope that doesn't happen!
