I must sound like the world's biggest hypochondriac, but I can't help it! I had a high dose of radiotherapy yesterday afternoon to help with some hip pain I was experiencing (it's not linked to the cancer, but it seems to be pressing down on the sciatic nerve, which has made it painful to walk, sit bend down and so forth). I was told I would probably have some itching and a burning sensation, which I did. It was very mild and was gone by the time I got home. But then later in the evening, both legs started hurting a lot, so much so that I was in tears. I took some paracetamol, which helped, but I got up twice in the night and now I can feel it happening again. I was not expecting pain in my legs. I asked how long it would be before my hip felt better and I was told 2-3 weeks. Honestly, with the pain in both legs, I haven't even noticed my hip! I just hope this pain wears off. It feels like there is no circulation in my legs and no position is comfortable. Both legs are the normal colour, and don't look purple or blue. I called and left a message with my oncology nurses, but they have not responded yet. They probably won't until tomorrow now, as it's just gone 4:30pm.
