Welcome to the site though I am sorry to hear of your husband's diagnosis. Did he have surgery? You did not mention that. Also is he really having more radiotherapy or is it chemotherapy?

My husband (dx Stage 111c in July 2003) did not experience too much rectal pain though he did have radiation enteritis which gave him some terrible stomach cramps. It just took a few weeks for that to go away when the treatment finished. As to the taste buds, that is difficult to deal with. I remember my husband saying nothing tasted good but he really tried to keep eating to maintain as much weight as possible.

It is a frightening time for you but you will read of Stage 111's and Stage 1V's who are doing well and that should encourage you. This time will pass and he will then be able to begin the road to healing and recovery. It will help to have two grandsons to look forward to.

Take care of yourself too.
