Just recently diagnosed(03/28) and begin treatment(no surgery) next monday. First of all I can't express how much it means to have found this website, not only for all of the information of my upcomming rigors, but the emotional and moral support provided by and for the members. As I'm sure you all can attest to the unknown of the upcomming is frightening. From reading prior posts I have a idea of what to expect and for that i'm greatful.
The one issue I was counseled on by my Radiation Oncologist was the potential for sphincter muscle damage or weakening resulting in bowel control issues. Have any of you post-treatment members experienced this and if so has it been permanent???? At this point this seems to scare me the most!!
Any insight will greatly appreciated and once again thanks to all for being there.
