      Healing is a process that takes time so I know that hearing that feels amazing! I hope your are still on that positive path, 6 months later!

    I was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma anal cancer and in some research they say it can be caused my HPV. Good luck to you too and this site is a great place for support if needed.

    Hello Dawn. I am just putting myself out there to say Hi. I was diagnosed with Anal Cancer and went thru treatment last year. I am in Florida too. Not sure if you are going to go thru treatment or just the surgery but thought I would at least offer a supportive ear if you need one.

      Dawn, I completely understand. I am not sure if you think it would be of any benefit to you or not but one thing that really helped me what having people I could text and fb. I like the Whatnext site but it takes too long for me to go thru all the post to find any of the responses to my questions. If you would like me to give you my cell number so we could text or if you want to be FB friends so that we can FB instant message then I would be totally game for that. As a matter of fact, my rectal surgeon called me a few weeks ago and asked if he could share my number with another girl, like me, who had been diagnosed. Of course I said Yes. Well, we have been texting ever since and she says it has really helped her. She is from St. Petersburg, Florida too (so am I). She just got her pic-line put in this past week (she is not doing the port) and she starts her first chemo and radiation on Monday. She is great woman, very beautiful and smart and has a good attitude about everything but is still scared and has a lot of questions. We can all be there for one another. If you are interested. So, if you do want to exchange numbers or friend one another on FB let me know.
