I have a permanent colostomy, my rectum was completely removed, (ie Barbie Butt). Do you have anything left back there? This was many years ago, a guy was diagnosed about 6 months prior to me, he too had pain there. Just wondering if there is a connection, guy wise. Can't remember if his rectum was removed. His name was Cancer Dad. He and communicated a few times on another forum, he was not here long. Sometimes I wish he was still here.
I will be honest, I had pain for up to 4 months following my surgery, felt like my tail bone was broken at it's worst. Butt it completely cleared up within 4 months following surgery. Once it healed I could sit on the hardest seat and be fine, am still that way today.
One thing that helped me then, was a yellow donut hole.
If it is scar tissue, why can't they remove it? I'm sorry you are dealing with this,
