I have had 10 treatments Of EBRT, my frequency of urination has increased from 1 times during night time sleep to two. My main concern, it beginning to be very painful with a burning sensation while urinating and the pain lingers afterwards . At first it was tolerable, now the pain is beginning to be an issue with me...(very painful) and it feels like my bladder never empties, along with pain in my penis and groin area.
I did mentioned this to my Doctor, and was told to take Ibuprofen. I am very allergic to aspirin, so ibuprofen is not for me. I do take tamsulosin once a day, but I don't think this helps to relieve my issue. I knew this would probably be a side effect, but was told by others who had radiation it was tolerable, but with me it has become a painful issue.
Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.
