Treatment without radiation

Just found out that I have anal cancer. I am a prostate cancer survivor after having brachytherapy. I am also unable to have any more radiation in the anal region. Has anyone else had this problem?

I'm very sorry to hear of your diagnosis. The fact that you have already had pelvic radiation does complicate things. I don't know of any other survivors who have dealt with this scenario, but perhaps someone here has and will chime in. I wish you all the very best and hope you'll let us know what your treatment plan is.
