My boyfriend finished radiation six weeks ago. All of a sudden he is experiencing lower abdominal pain, rectum leakage and diarrhea, a feeling like he needs to have a bowel movement but nothing comes out. Did anyone else experience these issues after? I'm reading conflicting stories on whether or not it's proctitis and his oncologist's office is saying that Proctitis only happens DURING radiation treatment. I'm also hearing different stories of how whatever he has is treated and the possible duration of the issues. Help please.
