I had my 3.5 year post treatment check-up appointment last Tuesday. I was a bit nervous beforehand partly because I was waiting on results of a CT-scan.
Well, cancer wise it seems so far so good however it was distressing to learn that the scan showed osteoporotic crush fractures to my vertebrae L4 and L5. Maybe this goes some way to explain why I often wake up with a stiff achey lower back. I'm in my 60s and there is a family history of osteoporosis but my gynae-onc said that the pelvic radiotherapy treatment has probably contributed to the problem.
I'm being referred to my GP for further investigations of my bones. Just thought I'd share and maybe connect with others who've had a similar experience.
