Hi lakeswim
I have stenosis after radiation
Both vaginally ( because I just had s smear) :cry: :cry: :cry:
And urethral,,, but they seem to have fixed my uthera by bringing in a urologists before my surgery and actually using a large catheter instead of a small one ..
As for peeing,, I continue to have UTI type symptoms after radiation for a few weeks ( nothing showing in sample) but eventually went back to normal

I'm not going to read 5 pages of replies so someone might have mentioned this. A church friend who is much younger than me has IC. I think it's interstitial cystitis. She has to cath herself three times a day and spray the inside of her bladder with a pain killer. A surgeon has offered to cut the nerve to her bladder because she has no life. She's never had cancer and this is something more women live with than I'd ever guessed. A urologist can help you.

Yes, I remember my bladder, everything down there being irritated. I was careful what I drank, nothing to acidic. It passed but frankly I think the radiation was about the worse thing I experienced. I hope this passes for you soon.
