My sister was diagnosed 4 weeks ago with stage III anal cancer. I am of course going somewhat blind into this thing trying to help- getting as much info as possible. I found your message board last weekend and have learned more from you all in that short amount of time- than I have in a month of research. She had her first meeting with her rad/onc last week and this week we are going through all of the other individual appts before they determine her treatment. My question is about the chemotherapy...I am curious what anyone's opinion is on the subject. I'm concerned about the toxicity levels that occur in some of the treatments....Any advice, or anything we should know going in? Thank you.
