My first radiation oncologist (2013) asked if I had hemorrhoids, I said I did (Stevedore and Longshoreman for a few years). She asked if they bled, I said yeah. She advised me that after radiation treatment they would get worse and so would the bleeding. She was right on both counts. Also proscribed a 1 hour nap every day. (It was 1/2 hour at the time). I have cut back to 45 minutes.
