Post Radiation Urinary Problems
After 5 weeks of external beam and brachytherapy, urination was like torture. No one warned me this could happen. Now I am told it will get better. Well, I am now into the 4th month after brachytherapy and I am no better. I have an urgency to pee which sometimes occurs 10 - 15 times a day. When I try to go nothing comes out. It takes about a minute to start dribbling and sometimes I can form a weak stream. When urine comes out it feels like battery acid that is so painful it brings tears to my eyes.
The doctors keep telling me that it will get better but after 3 months I feel like my life has been ruined. I made an appointment at Johns Hopkins for next week so maybe they have an answer.
Have you gone to a pelvic floor physical therapist?
