I have a rectal cancer right on top of the muscular sphyncter and even though I just started as my cancer has been progressing I have a small ammount but comntinuos leakage of blood and or brown liquid. Iput on lotion recommended by the nurse and a little tissue to absorb it.

Have any of you had this and how did you deal with it?

Thanks,

Laz

It's just part of the process especially if you are having radiation.  The lining of the rectum/colon is burned and will shed off and leave you with a toilet filled with sludge and yuck and blood.  You are not alone and it is a very scary place to be but not to be alarmed.  It is normal and it will eventually end.  I'm glad that you are asking questions that concern you, as most of it can be handled here but always, and I mean, ALWAYS, tell your doctors.  It's important that they know everything.  Hope you feel better.

Your intestinal lining will slough off lile a snake sheds its skin...

It's unnerving for sure.....radiation fries your insides...my onc said my intestines were fried like bacon....

Inflammed for me badly....no rest to heal.....six weeks the rectal resection followed...no temp ostomy so no rest for a colon that had been burned and cut.

Was 4-years before things settled down and bowel retrained itself...

An extreme case but what's happening is not abnormal....do tell doc to have it on record...
