Hello well here I am just about to go for my 5th dose radiotherapy alongside capeticibine chemo.. I seem to be having serious itching in the anus at night... Just wondered is this normal??? Also very concerned that after my 4.5wks of treatment I will still end up with a stoma.. Please I'm only 47...TIA

Hi

I'm afraid I can't answer your question but have just popped over from the melanoma group as I noticed your post had gone unanswered.

I'm assuming that this question relates to treatment you're receiving for anal cancer and, if so, you're more likely to get a response if you post this question in that group, which I see you've already joined.

All the best
