ITCHY BOOTY CHEEKS ANYBODY???????

so i dont know if its the small roid i have growing right inside of my butthole---thanks to chemo and/or radiation----god bless small annoyances----its not really at the lips  but more so on the cheek walls right outside of the lips.

as i use a bidet and do not use toilet paper to wipe-----so 12th century.... maybe its the moisture left over you might opine-----WRONG WRONG WRONG MOISTURE BREATH! as i dry it with toilet paper that i blot with and then i fan it.

could the problemo be that i wash it and the groinary area with a anti-bacterial soap once a day??.....

if i am ever in an accident and they take me in, i def have the cleanest booty in the universe.... a great joy to my doctors i presume.

i still have that slight numbness on the soles of my feet....usually felt at nite as they rub up against my 25,000 thread count north carolina cotton sheets.

it doesnt impede my mobility so i am not concerned about it. i will mention this to my chemo dr. this thursday.....

also to be mentioned is this sensation i have in my bones/body/skeleton that acts like its arthrithis.  yea i have some in my knees but now it seems a bit more. currently doing about 6-8 mile walks non stop and lifting some weights to get back some thigh muscles i lost somewhere.  also, i notice that i am not as limber as before so i am doing more streching.....might take up yoga or pilatus

ITS SO SAD TO SEE MORE AND MORE NEW FACES ON HERE....WE CAN SEND MEN TO THE MOON-OR TO SOME SOUND STAGE ON MGM's back yard....YET WE STILL CANT FIND CURES FOR THESE TERRIBLE KILLERS.

WISHING ALL A POSITIVE, HUMOR FILLED, RELAXED, PAINLESS AND LOVING EVENING

Hi Richard. I don't have any itchy sensation, but neuropathy and muscle/joints pain are here. In my understanding neuropathy may be permanent, and that's fine. My muscles and joints are pretty sore. I got a prescription for Celebrex, Plaquinil, and Flexeril. Also, I had to take Prednisone for a few months. All this stuff helps a lot. At least I can take a care of myself. Previously I couldn't get out of a bathtub without a help, and it wasn't possible to reach anything above my shoulders. I guess it's a pay to be alive. I hope you have loving evening too! Hugs!

I hope you have gotten better..... its too bad that it seems to have taken so many pills. yup....the things we have to deal with post treatment to be rid of cancer.

I am lucky that the neuropathy is not stopping me from going about my life....just a slightly numb feeling

Loss of flexibility and joint pain- side effects of radiation

I am exercising and stretching hoping to keep it at bay
Welcome to the club!
I don't hear you mention the moisture product; for me Aquaphor, and occasionally coconut oil. And of course bath, shower with Epsom salt before bed (for feet, target zone, and general body aches)
Sorry your suffering; good to share it with peers!
PS; I've decided not to check back with my ONC again; the last time, he was denying that the peripheral neuropathy could be from the chemo. Oh please...we can tell the difference in our bodies before and after.

the biggest thing is the itching....I am thinking its prob a fungus of some type.....?
A friend with AC was told to use a Athletes foot salve. It worked a bit for awhile, but I think we come to realize; even 3+ years outs; it takes a long time to heal radiated tissue. But I'm much better than I was and still healing.
I hope you get relief soon!
And she's a nurse Richard.
Ask your MD, like I mentioned before, could be those darn itchy sebaceous cysts caused by radiation.If so, My Gynecologist (someone not on your MD list lol), suggested to use OTC Calmoseptine, and only 10$, yea! and works well!

Love your sense of humor. That 'small roid' could be a sebaceous cyst, caused by radiation. Sounds serious, but isn't. And, butt cheeks definitely itchy, thank you Rads.
Muscles and joints have suffered for sure, find stretching, walking help. Sounds like you may be overdoing the long walks? Gentle with body, right?

Rectal proctitis, a follow-on to the radiation...ask your dermatologist for a remedy. And don't forget the diaper rash creams! They work!!!

NEGATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST AS I KNEW IT WOULD BE!!!

i have kicked the crap out of it....but it also kicked the crapola i had in me!:)

yes i am happy as gay can be..... at the same time i think of all of my fellow travelors on here and thru out the world that might not be receiving the same results....it is impossible now to just be happy for myself without also thinking of everybody else that is battling this dreadful thing.

i am not a believer in "god", but for those who do believe, i say continue to believe and grow stronger in your faith. for those non believers, have faith in yourself and continue to be positive and live your life as best as possible. 

good nite

richard

WEST LOS ANGELES V.A. MEDICAL CENTER-WESTWOOD

a week after having completed my PSA and urine tests(5/22/18), i noticed blood in the toilet and completed the F.I.T--fecal immunochemical test.... I forgot to mail it in and drove to the VA and had them give me another one, did it and that afternoon i returned it...two days later i received a call to schedule a colonoscopy for June 04, 2018. results came back positive for a ployp that was excised and also a 4-5cm malignant growth on the dentate line of the anus--right smack in/around my spinchter muscle. T3N0M0...prognosis seems to be really good as it has not traveled nor gone into nodes. scheduled to start chemo/radiation with 5-FU and mitomyacin first 4 days and last 4 days using a PICC line.

AM NOT USING THE 5-FU....INSTEAD ITS CAPECITABINE 500MG
