I've been diagnosed with rectal cancer of 3.3cm squamous cell

I've been diagnosed with rectal cancer of 3.3cm squamous cell carcinoma in situ where they said it is stage 2 with no lymphnode involvement. They also said that if surgery was done a colostomy would be the result due to the tumor's position in the rectum right inside the anus below the tail bone. So they proposed 5.5 weeks of radiation with chemo at the same time the 1st week and last week of the treatment plan.
Do you agree with the plan of action?
