Side effects after radiotherapy for rectal cancer are driving me nuts
Hi, first post on this site. Have tried to not come on lots so I don’t get scared.
I am 44 with a tumour in my rectum and have had my radiotherapy which ended 11 days ago and I swear the tumour feels bigger. I have never been to the loo so much, not left the house as feel immobile and scared of just needing the loo.
I start chemo a week today which is making me anxious as there will be more side effects… I don’t think I can bare the toilet anymore. I am strong and have a good support at home but I feel so lonely with this awful urgency for the loo all the time.
I originally was told this was piles until I had a camera and then was told umm it’s a tumour 😢😢😢
