......but this wasn't one I was looking forward to. Glad to hear the recovery after RT is short.
Under the heading of 'we're all different', I wouldn't count on it.
Some reports of this issue taking years to correct itself, not starting until months or years after RT (mine started 3 or 4 months after RT ended), effective treatment being nonexistent, and rectal diapers becoming a way of life.
My RO calls it "immediate rectal urgency". So does my GI doc. Ain't radiation grand? ;)
