I had an intestinal blockage brought on by heavily scared colon as a result of Radiation and Chemo after Anal Cancer in 2015. I've been struggling with painful, hard and large stool ever since my Cancer treatments stopped. I came to a head when, during a colonoscopy prep I couldn't pass stool and was in excruciating pain. I went to the ER on 11/2/22 and taken into emergency surgery to create a stoma and receive a bag. I'm not sure if this is a permanent situation or if a second surgery will fix things.
