    Thank you for the welcome and for being here. My mom had rectal cancer and had surgery to remove the tumor. She has a colostomy bag and has been receiving partical beam radiation treatments.
    Everything is really a mess now. She is very sick, and we're having a hard time trying to deal with all of the side effects.

      Good thoughts going out to your mom. I am 2 1/2 years out from being diagnosed with rectal cancer, and remember how much the side effects suck, but it will get better. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions - there are lots of different answers out here & someone may be able to help.
