I am a gay man, and noticed not too many men comment on this board;I just had an transanal excision, my pathology came back "squamous cell ca". I admire all the women who have posted here and supported and educated each other, would you please assist me?
I have a few questions about what to expect and how to manage over the next several months.
Here's where I am for now. Besides thinking very negatively and wanting run away from it all.
I have not had any other diagnostics yet, CT pending,oncology and radiation specialist are pending. I am one week post excision.
I need to return to work, I don't want to burn thru my paid time off. I sit 50% of the time. I am still having pain while attempting to have a BM, and difficulty iniating urine. I am giving it a couple of days to improve, and then wish to return to work.
I expect that by the time I am completely healed and ready to start treatment another 2 weeks will have elapsed.
Do you think I can have radiation in the morning, go to work and function?
I am generally a strong person and able to push myself.
