Did any of you continue to have pain and burning in the area of your tumor after your treatment? Like a stinging and burning? I seem to have an area that just doesn't seem to want to heal. My exam under anesthesia 3 months out and DRE was normal and I don't have blood on BM it appears, just this specific area that stings and burns mostly with sitting and when I contract my anus ... if you know what I mean. I had a stinging and tearing feeling on BM in the same area with bleeding before and after diagnosis and treatment which has gone away/so no pain on BM now ... but still this painful area worries me? Seems it should go away. Colo Rectal surgeon says did not see anything on exam. Any ideas or similar experience ... I have a 3 month check up in a couple weeks. Does scar tissue burn and sting for a time after radiation?
