Proton Beam Short Course: How can I prepare?
I was diagnosed with rectal cancer Stage 2A, T3, N0, M0 on July 21, 2021. Mayo recommends one week short course radiation starting Sept. 27, followed by a proctosigmoidectomy with temporary ileostomy on October 4. What should I expect? Should I start to modify my diet now? Please send me any advice you have! Thank you.
