About a year after discovering incurable cancer in
my rectum, I developed a perirectal abcess in my left buttock. . My doctor said that the cancer can cause this when it invades surrounding tissue. I had the abcess surgically removed
Six weeks ago I developed another abcess in my left buttock.
I am curious to hear from other people who have experienced this. I'd like to know how widespread it is because I'd never heard of it as a side-effect
of rectal cancer. The downside of all this is that I cannot get chemo while undergoing treatment for the wounds left by the surgery
