Even on the first day of radiotherapy, I felt improvements. I could move more freely and start to stand and put weight on my left side without a searing pain sweeping through my hip any more. Day by day, I am feeling stronger. Side-effects are minimal; a couple of times I have taken pain-killers in the evening. That’s less then before. I had a slightly upset stomach a couple of times, but nothing too major, and it could easily have been something I ate.
The pain had zapped my spirit and I lost confidence. Minor tasks had become overwhelming. Now I can do some housework and gardening again, and have the energy to get outdoors, rather than needing to lie down to get some relief from the pain.
