My close friend was in radiation for colon cancer,after they removed it. The burns on his buttocks were blistered and painful. The only thing he could do to get relief was a sit bath with a touch of epsom salt. He did this three to five times a day. It was the only time he could relax. Be careful with the tempature of the water, get it how you feel comfortable. He said lukewarm was best.
Keep an ongoing , forward attitude also. Things seemed hard, but after time, even the taste of lead in food will go away. Although he is still sore at times, a year later, his attitude and hobbies have kept him active, and happy. Friends are a good healer also.
