After complaining here about
PC post external radiation pain I had a sigmoidscopy done. The result was I have an anal fissure. they even gave me a photo of it.
Has anyone here had a simlar experience? If so, what did you do about it? Did it get better? It is very painful now.
Looking back on my own experience I suggest that everyone get their rectal problems taken care of prior to any kind of radiation, although a colonscopy I had prior to begining treatment was negative. Always use stool softeners at the slightest hint of constipation!!!! Also, remain upbeat, do not get anxious or depressed -- it works against you!
PS: I am NOT a doctor.
