Hi everyone! I'm 4 months post treatment. My CT scan showed no cancer. YAY! I am going for a sigmoidoscopy this coming Tuesday and I am trying real hard not to freak out. I was told the reason for the sigmoidoscopy is because the CT scan doesn't show everything. Well, when I have a bowel movement it is starting to hurt on the side the turmor was on. I posted in an earlier post that my stools were narrow, and now they aren't. They are almost normal size but it hurts when I go to the bathroom. I guess what I'm trying to ask is...is this part of the healing process? I am terrified the cancer is back or the treatments didn't work. I've tried looking to see what is the healing process for anal cancer but I can't find anything. Thanks for your help. I don't know what I would do without all of you.
