Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
As per my surgical experience, the radiation-induced damage giving blood through anus needs prompt actions as -
- Priority-based appointment with gastro surgeon - Maintenance of hydration with plenty of liquids - Dietary measures, bulk-forming laxatives to avoid hard stools - Avoid smoking or alcohol if consuming - Get prescription of calcium dobesilate, tranexamic acid or other agents which controls capillary bleeds very well.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards, Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel

Dear Dr Kruger I was diagnosed with anal cancer in January 2006. I had six weeks of radiation and two full weeks of chemotherapy. I was given all the clear in June 2006. They then found a growth in my liver and I had 3 more rounds of chemotherapy. There was no change in the growth but the doctors decided to do a liver resection. The growth turned out to be non cancerous. As I am 43 and because of the treatment I have had I have done into menopause. I been prescribed Livial one tablet a day, Provera one tablet for 14 days and Ovestin twice a week. I have reservations about taking this medication. Do you think my reservations are warranted?
