      I haven't finished treatment yet, but since surgery they ask me if I have experienced any blood each time I go in. I'd let them know.

      I am still undergoing treatment but have experienced this. Please let your doctor know and they can run tests to see what is going on. It could be something minor but you want to make sure you know for sure. Aside from blood in urine I also experienced urgency. I told my doctor and he did a urine test. We thought it might be a UTI but it wasn't. I went in to do a Cystoscopy, where they push a small camera inside to see what is going on in the bladder. The urologist told me I had radiation cystitis. I was given medication for it. I haven't seen blood in my urine any more. I wish you all the best. Hugs.

      Yes! 8 months later, I still see blood in my urine every now and then. My oncologist and radiologist says I'm still raw from all the radiation and not to worry - she prescribed Vagifrem for the bleeding and dryness and its seems to be working well!!

    Hi this is prittinpink I posted about Reiki. Thanks for your answer, also I noticed you live in Pa and are certified in Reiki just wondering if you know of anyone in York, Pa who is offering Reiki or Healing touch for cancer patients? My father lives there and he also has cancer he's been through alot of treatment and I really feel it would help him. I'd appreciate any help you can offer, thanks.

      Hi, I'm in Chester County, York is quite a bit a way. My daughter has a friend who is a nurse in York, I will ask her to ask her friend if she has heard of anyone. Also, most oncology offices now know of someone who offers free to cancer patients. Let me see what I can find out for you.
