pain after radiotherapy for prostate cancer.
7chris posted:
Having suffered acute pelvic and testicular pain following a 12-sample biopsy and hormone therapy which, oddly, diminished during radiotherapy, but then came back with a vengeance when the treatment was finished. It's now a year since completion of treatment, but the pain won't go away.

Ironically, prior to the blood tests, giving me a psa of 27, (up by 20 over fifteen years) I had no symptoms at all

The specialists say pain very unusual, but I have since learned that it's actually common. I cannot get the truth from any medical person, and I have to say, it feels like a conspiracy to maintain the multi-billion-dollar prostate industry.

If anyone out there is experiencing pelvic pain after radiotherapy, I'd love to hear from you. According to my urologist it's as rare as hens' teeth.
