Brother Sonny, so very glad that you down to your last 5, a weeks worth. I remember that point well. I was spared the urgency and pain with the urinating part only because I had a catheter during the whole ordeal. But was rewarded with endless mega spasms instead and a lot of tube pain. Sure you are feeling some more fatigue settling into your bones. I never had any real problems with loose bowels or bleeding back there like some do. My dr. was surprised I didn't. I was just glad.
Be so glad when this is over for you too. Expect to it to take several weeks at least when you are through for some of the side effects to improve. I was disapointed that it wasnt' a more instant thing. Mine ended the last of November, and I am still having issues, but they are slowly getting better, slight improvement most days. My dr. said to be patient. Like our surgeries, the body and immune systems has been put through hell with the doses of RT we were receiving.
