Aloha,
Anyone more than a year out from EBRT/IMRT and have been diagnosed with radiation damage to rectum? Mine seems to be getting better, but have not gotten much encuragement as to how long it will last. Seems to show up 8 to 10 months after radiation treatment. Hundreds of very small bleeding blood vessels. Have had one Ag laser treatment, still have blood, will probably require another cauterazation soon. Had to stop eating bread for several months because of gas and Urgent Toilet Trips (UTT). Getting better at holding #2 back. Was able to stop wearing panty liners after one year.
