    I don't know about the chicken pox but even though my butt department dosen't work anymore due to a colostomy, I did get a nasty staph infection in there, how it got there I don't know and it seems neither do my doc's

    There is a great Yahoo site with people just like you surviving anal cancer who also have hpv or hiv look into under the section GROUPS then type in anal_cancer (that's anal with an underline then cancer). 300 members for this 6 year old list serve and about 500 postings on the average month. I'm almost a 4 year survivor of anal cancer as of 2006
