    Hello, I also have been recently diagnosed with Anal Cancer. We are on a real close schedule of rounds of Chemotherpy. The regimen I am on is Folfox 6. What regimen did you decide on? My cancer was diagnosed due to a swollen, golf ball size lymph node gland. I am a 30 year Crohns Disease patient so due to my history of fistulas, the doctors are having a hard time of locating the tumor. So I am doing chemo in hopes of shrinking everything to pinpoint the tumor location for radiation. My doctors so far have ruled out any tumor surgery. God bless you and stay in touch if you have any questions about chemo. I think I am one round ahead of you and might be able to help with questions you may have to whats next.

    Hello TxBonz.........just opened an email today from WhatNext with your info as a match for me. I have to say I was happy to see someone local to communicate with in regard to our new way of life....for awhile.
    I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Anal Cancer 111B on November 7, 2013.
    Today I am about to head back to Baylor to return their wonderful pump that has been injecting 5-fu into me for the last 46 hours. This is the end of my third round of Folfox 6. I should be feeling like a human again by Monday.
    I would love to stay in touch with you on how you are doing, what stage in the process you are at, etc. Maybe being able to communicate with someone who can relate can help us both as we get back to normalcy.
    I actually live east of Dallas in Terrell and I not been able to locate a support group near me so I am working on setting up a support group for anyone in this area.
    If you don't if I ask, where do you get your treatment. What regimen are you on? And how are you doing?
    Please contact me by email or facebook. My email is [email redacted].
