    Hi
    So sorry you ha e this to deal with. Exactly one year ago I was diagnosed with anal cancer stage 111B. It had traveled to a couple pelvic lymph nodes. I started chemo/ radiation the day after Christmas. Had Chemo run form 96 hours straight thru a port in my chest at the beginning of treatment and the end of treatment. Had 30 rounds of radiation. Finished up mid February. I have been in remission for 9 months. All my doctors said anal
    cancer was treatable and curable.
    I am 68 and tolerated the treatment pretty well. Did have one blood infusion. Everyone handles the treatments differently. Try not to read treatment side effects on the internet. I did and was scared silly. You can do this!! If you have any questions that I could answer please let me know.
