I am a 30yr old gay male, who is also HIV+. Finding out that I had anal cancer after battling HIV for 9yrs was quite a blow, but I made it through. The tumor is completely gone and the pain has eased tremendously, considering. However, when standing I feel this terrible pressure, like gravity pulling at my anal area. This seems to be prolonging my agony. My surgeon seems to think that everything should be completely fine soon, I just need to hear from someone who has experienced this. How long can I expect this aching when standing to last?
