Hi I'm a 37 yo gay male who has enjoyed anal sex for years, this summer I was diagnosed with NHL lymphoma cancer and completed the 6 rounds of chop chemotherapy. During treatment I started pooping blood and didn't think anything of it as the rest of my body was completely destroyed by chemo but by the 3rd treatment I started feeling pain down there during bowel movements and looked to find two tears 12 o clock and 6 o clock in my anus
My oncologist said fissures can be common during chemo as the body is slow to heal, I saw a general surgeon at my worst and he put me on flagyl and acyclovir and I saw him again 4 weeks later and finished chemo, he said looking down there I am healing but it'll take time.
How much time will it take? It hurts to have even a soft bowel movement its like a stinging sensation a deep cut. I'm worried ill never have anal sex again. Currently I am 20 pounds underweight lost all my hair am about a week out since my last final chemo feeling a little better but I'm just scared how long will I have this cut in my anus, heck there are two cuts/tears/sores
Also I was put on the nitroglycerin ointment and that did nothing at all but made me light headed
Has anyone else had the same experience as me? Did your anus recover?
