    Question Anyone experience adverse effects from pelvic radiation for rectal ca?

    Hello. I am a 2.5 yr Stage 3/4 rectal ca survivor. I have ongoing g.i. issues and have not returned to work since 2005. After a recent test called a defacagraphy, I was told the pelvic radiation I received in 2005 damaged my pelvic floor and wall and that is why I continue to have problems either going too much or being constipated or experiencing seepage or fecal incontinence. I was just wondering if anyone else out there in the community has had similar experiences, either just side effects from radiation or specifically, pelvic damage. Thank you.
