I finished my radiation therapy three years ago. I have had bleeding on the toilet paper after wiping and urgency, but other than that no symptoms. Last Tuesday, and continuing since, I have had blood on the actual stool and in the toilet bowl as opposed to just on the tissue. On wiping, the blood is there immediately whereas before it was only after i had wiped that there was blood. I saw my local physician who consulted with my ro. They both think it is radiation proctitis and willl be doing a sigmoidoscipy in about ten days to see if its anything else and to confirm the diagnosis. I am scared to death as i am three years out and this is different in scope from the earlier bleeding. anyone have anything like this happen to them or any input?
