Experiences with Urinary changes (frequency, urgency)

Urinary changes are a common symptom of chemotherapy and can irritate your bladder or cause short or long-term damage to the kidneys. Side effects of urinary problems associated with chemotherapy include pain and burning when you urinate, a frequency of urinating, a feeling of urgency with urinating, reddish or bloody urine, fever, and chills. Urine color may change to orange, red, green, or yellow. Urinary changes can also be symptoms of certain types of cancer. If you are experiencing these side effects from chemotherapy and they have become a major concern, it is important to tell your doctor.

Urinary changes along with diarrhea, vomiting, and constipation are all sensitive side effects associated with chemotherapy because they inhibit your body from functioning properly and can often cause pain, a lowering of self-esteem, body image, and your libido. Talking with other WhatNexter’s about these sensitive problems can help you cope. For firsthand insights and advice, read below about what others have experienced.
