My husband had High Dose Brachytherapy, followed by 6 weeks of external beam radiation in May/June last year. Although he has had some ups and downs, this past month has been a difficult one with what we thought was a urinary infection. Lots of problems with urgency and frequency. He has been on anti-biotics however, later pathology suggested that there was no infection present.
Yesterday he came in from the toilet and told me that he had peed blood. Fairly bright red. Of course this scared us quite a bit. Went to the doctor and we have a referral to see specialist on Monday. Dr. mentioned that there is such a thing as Radiation Cystitis and this is not uncommon.
Anyone else who had radiation experience similar things? and if so, what happened?
thank you in anticipation of some help.
