Painful Urination during Radiation/Chemo

I was diagnosed on July 12 with Stage 3b Rectal Cancer. I am currently having daily radiation treatments along with taking Xeloda on treatment days. I will have 28 treatments then surgery. Today I completed my 17th treatment and am really starting to feel the affects. I have very painful urination. My doctor prescribed a medication to ease the pain, but it's more outer than inner. Anyone has any suggestions as to what I can use? I have tried Aquafor, Utter Cream, even medicated powder. Nothing seems to help the area. Any suggestion no matter how bizarre will be helpful. I don't want to take any days off of treatment if I can help it because surgery will be done after these treatments are complete. Thanks in advance.
