Although I have a post on the colorectal board it is great to find some gay men who are going through what I am going through. It has been difficult to find men with rectal cancer who are willing to talk about what is happening to them let alone gay men. You would think that in NYC, it wouldn't feel like I'm the only one. As for me the brief run down is dx 5/27/07, radiation/5FU for 5 weeks, lower pelvic anastomosis with temp ileo 8/3, reversal 10/3, now in the adjuvent therapy stage with Oxaliplatin, leucovoren, 5FU (3 treatments down, 9 to go). Trying to take the healing process one step at a time. I can relate to much of what has been posted from the difficulties with relationships to the more personal side effects. Thanks you all for being out there.
