Hi, I was recently diagnosed with anal cancer in April of this year. I completed 30 radiation treatments and two rounds of chemo. I have been looking for someone to talk to for a very long time. I have had some real challenges during my treatment, but now that I'm in recovery, I thought things would get easier, but unfortuntately things are not what I thought they would be. I'm having some major problems with constipation and PAINFUL bowel movements. I would like to talk to someone...ANYONE...who may have had radiation in the pelvic area to share what works for you and what doesn't. Maybe I can get some suggestions and I definitely need a lot of encouragement and support! Looking forward to talking to someone. Once my treatments were over, it almost seemed as if I was given a pat on the back and sent on my way to figure everything out on my own as if I had done this before!
