So last week I got my 1 year post treatment ct scan results, my last day of brachytherapy was august 6 th last year. I was so nervous, I still get really anxious waiting on the results, they came back NED , so that was a relief, don't have a scan till February a mri. Next year I believe I'll be down to 2 scans, hopefully. The mri in February and a ct scan in august and my pelvic exams still every 3 months. I have been having discomfort when sitting down going on since July, my gynecologist oncologist took a at the end of July and couldn't tell what's wrong, so I'm starting to think it's something with my urethra. Especially since the problem occurred after taking a 10 day antibiotic for a uti in late June. I told my radiation dr about my discomfort last week when he was giving me my scan results. He performed a pelvic exam and said he couldn't see anything wrong, he advised me to go see a regular gynecologist and not my gynecologist oncologist, so they can be more focused on what to look for and not just looking to see if my cervix is free of cancer. I have a appointment with a gynecologist in the beginning of October then it's time to see my gynecologist oncologist at the end of October. I just feel like I'm not getting anywhere right now, and think somebody just needs to refer me to a urologist already. I started estrogen cream a month ago, hoping to see some benefits to my urethra. I think it's still to early, but I have noticed after 2 weeks on the cream I've gotten a lot more narrower inside, my dilators feel like they have a lot less room in there. Even having sex a little over a week ago my boyfriend was like" woah it feels tight in there". I may need to get a bigger dilator now to try to stretch things out a little, I feel like it hasn't helped with sensitivity yet either, if anything I may feel a little more sensitive now then before. My pelvic exam last week felt a little uncomfortable too, I think since there's a little less room in there. Before I started the cream I had a lot of discharge, almost thought I had a yeast infection, but I didn't and they tested for everything and just said that it was my normal discharge right now. So I didn't need to go on the cream for internal dryness , I just wanted to strengthen my urethra and vagina. I'm gonna ask at my appointment at the end of October if I should stay on it or not , but I do feel a little more sensitive in there now and see more redness around my vaginal opening. I bought some vulva cream called VMagic that's all natural and has good reviews, so I'm gonna give that a try and see if that helps with anything.
