Where was your surgery? If…you had Lower Anterior Resection..then there is a group on Facebook that I found that is most helpful. If your situation is different…then I would suggest you speak with your doctor to convey your issues. Hopefully…he/she will have further suggestions . Good luck to you!

Thank you. I did hear back and am holding off on an appointment. They said they diagnose but don't treat my conditions. I don't understand why that is?

Can anyone please advise where to find a doctor that deals with the after effects of rectal cancer. I have been struggling with LARS for over 4 years now. Have either constipation or diarrhea on a daily basis. Tried just about everything to help me with no improvment. Want to avoid the bag at all costs. Please tell me where to go. I am suffering from depression now and home restricted.

I know what this is like. Very scary when you hear the C word for the 1st time. The best advice I can give is to just breathe. There is so much going on for you right now. If you would like…we can talk. I am a rectal cancer survivor and have been through the ringer.
You can reach me here or by private message. Hang in there!!
