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

Hi, i m 18 yrs old and about 44 kg. I have an itchy anus for 3 wks now. The itch is more during nightime. No bleeding and no blood in my faeces, no bumps and no pain when I pass faeces. What medication can you recommend, it s so uncomfortable . Please help.
I was recently fingered in my anus and I noticed right after I was bleeding. When I went #2 the day after (today) it hurt and it started to bleed again. What should I do? Can I use Vaseline to help it heal? I read online to go on a liquid diet so it would heal without going #2.. Please help! Thanks.

Metastatic adenocarcinoma in lung. Adenocarcinoma spread in both lung. History : treated for endometrum cancer at Kidwai Memorial Institute Of Oncology Bangalore in Dec 2010. Surgery followed by radiotherapy was done for endometrium. Hot spot in lung in Dec 2010 PET scan was considered as Granuloma due to no uptakes shown in PET scan. Now CT scan & biopsy (through EBUS) technique confirmed that it's adenocarcinoma type of tissues. Origin has been confirmed: It's endometrium (Uterus). We met pulmonologist Dr Ravindra M Mehta (Appolo, Bangalore) and he suggested Stenting to ease the breating as there is 90% blockage of right lung airways. Oncologist at Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology , Bangalore have been suggested Chemeotherepy as next step. But before that they decided for stenting to cure 90% blockage (due to tumor) to improve the patient condition. Stenting is done [Right Bronchus].
brief clinical history- history of endometrial adenocarcinoma. specimen-EBUS- Transbronchial needle aspiration of mediastinal lymphnode
Gross Examjnation- received 10 H and E stained slides. 2 slides- Station 4R, 2 slides- Station 11L, 2 slides- Station 4L, 4 slides- Station 7
cytological features are suggestive of metastatic adenocarcinoma- Station 4R, 11L, 4L AND 7
Treatment for recurrent cancer (no reoccurrence at surgical site but spread in bilateral lung):
Has gone through 10 cycles of chemo (weekly) with below regimen (at Mzumder shaw cancer center under supervision of Dr Vineeta Binoy & Dr Bharat):
Carbo platin (kemocarb) : 130 mg Abraxane (nano particle drug delivery for paclitexal): 200mg Neopojen (Growth colony factor- GSF-300 mcg for two continuous day after every round of chemo)
Before the above regimen, she had gone through one round of below chemo:
Cisplatin Adriamycine Docitexal GCF
As she could not tolerate the very first regimen (Cis platin based), she was put on 9 cycles of second regimen (as described above).
Plural effusion gone Good response as tumor shrank (largest lession before chemo was 3.2 cm, now after chemo it's reduced to 1.5 cm). Medistinal lymphnodes also reduced in size.

I am asking this question for my friend. She had chemotherapy two years ago for a very invasive form of breast cancer. For the past six months her incontinence has steadily worsened. She has to change her sheets every night and is exhausted. She is on a fentanyl patch for chronic neuropathic pain as well as anti-depressants. She does not have high blood pressure, but now is experiencing shortness of brearth. She is not satisfied with the care she has been receiving from her physicians and does not know what to do? What would you recommend? Thank you very much.
