My Journey

Half Way ... and it's going awry.

I'm now half-way through my radiotherapy. It was going very well for the first three weeks, but last week my urine flow decreased. Initially a bit concerned but not too worried.

However, Saturday I woke with aching limbs and a temperature of 102+ deg. F. Frequent urinating, urgency and burning sensation. Ibuprofen/Paracetamol brought down the temperature, but the other issues remain.

Doesn't bode well for my next radiotherapy session and I've still got 4 weeks to go. :(

Think I'll need to phone the radiographers, first thing on Monday morning.
