I was diagnosed with rectal cancer in 2008. Treated with chemo/radiation then surgery. Followed with surgery in 2010 & 2011 to treat multiple complications including hernia repairs, tram flap, fistulas, TFL flaps among other complications. I have been diagnosed with an abscess in radiated tissue in the presacral area. After several opinions to treat this abscess I have been told by interventional radiologists and surgeons that the area is too difficult to access to treat abscess. I have fevers, pelvic pain, rectal bleeding (I have a permanent colostomy) that is being treated with antibiotics. I’m wondering if anyone else out there have had similar problems and how it is being treated.
