Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Radiation can compromise immune system.

That can increase the risk of bladder infection.

Infection will cause cloudy urine.

Another possibility is excess protein leakage from the kidneys.

Excessive inflammation of the kidneys and urinary tract also can cause this.

Urine analysis should be ordered to determine the cause.
