Just wondering if others experience muscle soreness and weakness in their thigh and buttock muscles and if so what has helped with this issue? I assume this is all radiation related because I never had this before treatments. Yesterday I was doing some planting in my shade garden, which of course entails getting up and down repeatedly. I found that I could only do about two plants and then had to rest because my thigh muscles were so weak, sore and fatiqued. I walk a great deal and also work out at times (admittedly not as much as I should) on elyptical and other weight-bearing machines - but this thigh muscle probem seems to persist. It just feels like my muscles have "shrunk" and they don't stretch very well. Wondering what has helped others? Yoga? I realize this really is a minor problem compared to alot of the radiation after-effects so many people are dealing with, but just wondered if anyone has any advice they could give.......
