    Hi there. So sorry you have to be here but there are many here who will help. I am a stage one anal cancer Survivor and you will be too! Sounds like you’re at the end of treatment which is great. Congratulations on making it through a brutal treatment! Now you can start the healing process which will take a while. Be kind to yourself, get plenty of rest, try to eat and drink to keep your strength up, and just enjoy being done!

    So sorry to hear if your diagnosis. I am a four year survivor of Stage 1 Anal Cancer and never thought I’d be the one offering advice! It’s a tough treatment but you will get through it. Sounds like you are headed in for more testing Keep us posted on your results. Rectal and Anal cancers are treated a bit differently so your doctor will let you know once testing is complete. Hang in there!!

      Hi Garson... Kind of new to this posting stuff. yes I went to have a colonoscopy yesterday and thank you Jesus there is no rectal cancer. So I am a stage 2 and doing six full weeks of radiation and chemotherapy... I'm starting next week Monday the 22nd. I'm sure I'll be posting more somewhere along the way, but if you pray send up a prayer for me. Thank you

    So sorry for your diagnosis. I was stage 1 and went through the treatment of 6 weeks radiation with chemo week 1 and 5. It's tough but you'll get through it! I am now 2 months shy of being 3 years NED. Wishing you the best!!

      Thank u. The Dr says I look good but that it will b quite awhile after treatment before i know if it worked. But i love hearing the survival stories. It's so scary.
