To Pee or not to Pee...That is my question!

I finished treatment last October and have been in remission since February. During treatment I didn't have many issues apart from loose bowels which calmed down and nausea. The last few days I have noticed that when I finish peeing and stand up a trickle of urine comes out. Does anybody else have or have had this problem? I had Stage 2b and treatment consisted of 5 session s of chemotherapy, 6 weeks of radiotherapy and 3 sessions of brachytherapy.

Stage 2B Cervical Cancer and lymph no de confirmed May 2018. 5 Chemo/6 weeks Radiotherapy and 3 x Brachytherapy. Finished treatment October 2018. In remission January 2019 CT Scan November 2019 for pelvis, stomach and chest given all clear.

Hello Mousehouse, thanks for replying.  The radiotherapy damaged the nerves in the pelvic area and I am seeing a Physiotherapist.  She said that every girl from the age of 11 should be doing pelvic exercises!  I didn't have the problem then so I have not mentioned the issue and the exercise I am doing is holding my pee half way through which most of the time works☺  Is there anything else that you can recommend?  Thanks!

Not sure how old you are, but nearly every woman over the age of 45 has this problem.  It may have nothing to do with cancer treatment.  If it persists, I know there are treatments available.

  • Aug18, 2017- told I had cc
  • Oct 11, 2017-Radical Hysterectomy scheduled.
  • Oct 11, 2017- Radical Hysterectomy  not performed due to a cancerous lymph node.  Staged at 2B
  • Nov 6, 2017--Chemorads to start 
  • December 23, 2017--finished treatment
