Completely agree with this - re-resections (aka ‘salvage’ resections) of the (peri-)rectum and pelvis/peritoneum are definitely done but usually only by specialist colorectal / peritoneal surgeons in this area. I’d suggest doing some research for names, and considering travelling for a direct consult if necessary.
