johnr - for curiosity sake, when you had your radiation, was yours performed with a full or nearly full bladder each time? mine was done on a completely empty bladder with a suprapubic catheter in place.
bill - yeah, seen far more pain the past 2 1/2 years of my life than any I ever experienced in the service, lol. its one thing to experience level 8-10 pain for a short instance, like a tooth ache, or a sudden injury, but whole different thing when it become a day and night ordeal with no end in sight, or any real hopes of improvement. if it weren't for the pain meds I am on, there's no way I could endure this, let alone as long as it has been already.
David, Yes bladder was always full for all 42 treatments, one time came in and had the water thing timed and they were running 45 mn late and came real close to makeing a hugh mess lol!
