As both a PC and an external beam radiation victim, at least that is what I feel like now, due to post radiation rectum burn lasting 6 weeks with no sign of leaving -- I have two questions.
1. Can anyone tell me why anyone, after reading all these posts here would not choose surgery? If I had read this forum before I made my decision for IBRT, I think my rear end would be feeling a whole lot better than it is right now.
2. Is there anyone here in this PC group who also made the choice for IMRT, who's quality of life, like mine, went from good to awful in 2 short months due to rectum burn? DID IT EVER GET BETTER?
Thanks in advance for your help.
