I'm also a new comer to all of this. I was diagnosed with rectal cancer about a month ago,It's very early stages, it's not in the nodes and doesn't look to be fingering out through the walls, we are not doing chemo or radiation at this time, but doing surgery. They are going to do whats called a Transrectal Surgery. Where I believe they will bring my rectum Out,cut away the cancer and put it back where it belongs. This sounds VERY PAINFUL. Has anyone out there gone through this type of surgery????
I'm told I can't go to work for 2 weeks and no travel for 4. will I ever be able to sit again??
I'd really like to have an idea of what to expect
