Radiation Recovery

Hi all,

I just completed the six weeks of chemo and six weeks of radiation. YEA!

Surgery will be next. My question is what can I do to help speed up the healing?  So sore. Cramping, loose stoole (better than constipation) gas, bloating, Lots of pain in entire area. Urine seens to flow sideways,not to much discomfort there but the itching. Urinate frequently. (why?) Most of the pain is in all the rest of my bottom.  Seem to have a malformed rectum with sharp raggid areas. Hard to sit. I use the supositories, anti itch perscription  and silver stuff, with little relief. Also switch off to aquaphor.

Any suggestions? How long is the healing process.

Also I have developed three blisters on my left fore arm (burns)??????????? 

Thanks for your thoughts.

My friend had radiotherapy as one of her cancer treatments. As a result she was diagnosed with radiation colitis. I can't say her symptoms were exactly the same as yours, but in order to find out she went to her General Practitioner. Good luck.
