If anyone here has experienced rectal radation burn after IMRT please contact me. I'm post radiation for 6 WEEKS and my rectal burn is still with me. How long does this thing take to heal??

Sorry for your problem.  I have just completed treatment 24 of IMRT and have no side affects in the area you ask.  I do  know that this is an area that they ask about every week week during my weekly visit with the doctor. The tech asks me daily how things are down/back there.  So far I have no problems in the area.  I wish I could help but can only suggest you consult your doctor(s)
