This is side effect of radiation and common. You may try probiotics and more fiber rich food to help with the constipation.

Fatigue is a common side effect during and post radiation therapy, over time you'll recover and regain the energy. Some long term side effects include ED and urinary problems. If you have concern you need to discuss with your Dr. It depends on the area and dose.

I had a prostecomy in 2015. Received radiation treatments 15 months later.  I recently began to pass blood in my urine. My urologist conducted a cystoscopy and it showed weakened blood vessels in my bladder. He said it was a side effect of the radiation therapy.  Is this true? If so ,other than  cortorizing my bladder, is there any other way to fix this problem? Medication perhaps?
