I am new to this but it is nice to say I have anal cancer and not be embarrassed. I was diagnosed Sept 1, 2011 with stage III 4cm tumor with lymph nodes affected. Went thru the 6-8 weeks of chemoradiation with Mitomycin and 5FU and 28 radiation treatments, hospital stay and all. I finished in Nov and was clear. My PET this May revealed cancer in my right groin lymph node (everything else clear), confirmed by a biopsy, so tomorrow I go thru chemo again for 6 weeks. This time Cisplatin and 5FU. I refused anymore radiation because of the damage. Has anyone on this board had a recurrence, chemo then cleared? I need to keep my job and life going as a single woman, so I get anxious every time I get hit with cancer again. Any info is appreciated. And bless you all and continue to stay healthy and fight this disease.
