Patients are often concerned about the side effects of radiation therapy for colon cancer. As Dr. Murtry describes in the video below, there are very few side effects of radiation in the treatment of colon cancer. Dr. Murty received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry - New Jersey Medical school. He completed his internship in internal medicine and residency in radiation oncology at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia where he served as Chief Resident. He has done research and published on the radiotherapeutic treatment of squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck of unknown origin and total mesorectal excision of rectal cancers. His publications also include a book chapter on the radiation of vascular tumors of the ocular fundus.

What Are the Risks of Radiation Therapy for Colon Cancer?

In addition to the normal side effects of radiation therapy for colon cancer a chief risk of radiation therapy is the development of cancer due to increased radiation exposure. This can happen a few decades down the line for colon cancer patients so it is important to be aware of. Granted, the risk it not large but it is something doctors want patients to be aware of.

Colon Resection Performed To Treat Colorectal Cancer - Manipal Hospitals
 
02:54
Colon resection is done by removing a part of the large intestine if you have colorectal cancer or other conditions like blockage of intestines, trauma to the intestine and due to presence of numerous, large colon polyps. Colon is a large muscular tube located at the end of the intestinal track. It absorbs the water and electrolytes from the digested remains of food. What is a colon resection? A colon resection is where a surgeon removes part of or the entire colon due to cancer and other conditions. What role does the colon play? It has a role in water absorption and the creation of feces. Why is this performed? The procedure is usually performed to treat colo-rectal cancer and blockage of the colon due to polyps. The pre-procedural preparations are mentioned and the procedure is then explained. The colon is first clamp before the offending portion of the colon is removed along with surrounding tissue. The two remaining ends are then stitched together and any generated fluid is then transferred to an external pouch. The post-procedural complications and care are then explained.

Location Matters with Colorectal Cancer
 
01:46
Location, location, location. As with many things, it counts when it comes to colorectal cancer. Disease that affects the lower GI tract is divided into colon and rectal cancer. They are treated differently based on location. “Colon cancer is a bit more straightforward. Usually you just take it out and if the lymph nodes are positive then you get chemo,” says Dr. Janette Gaw, who is a colorectal surgeon on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. Ken Lemme learned firsthand. A large tumor in his colon reached down to the rectum; requiring extra steps to treatment. “I started radiation treatments in December. I had 28 treatments and February 17th I was in the hospital doing surgery,” says Lemme. When treating rectal cancer, radiation and chemo typically come first. Followed by surgery and many times, more chemo. “I am in the end of that segment now. I’ve got two more weeks of chemotherapy,” says Lemme. Rectal cancer has deeper implications because the lower GI tract is situated inside the pelvis. A small space, it makes getting clear margins during surgery more difficult. Undergoing treatment first leads to greater success. “Chemo and radiation, when you receive it beforehand it helps with the surgery because it shrinks the tumor and also decreases the local recurrence,” says Dr. Gaw. Historically, patients with rectal cancer faced a permanent colostomy. Now it is often a temporary state. “Once that area heals then we just reverse them and so they can go to the bathroom normally,” says Dr. Gaw. “I was lucky enough to be where I am and able to get it early enough and to be able to move on,” says Lemme. A tough diagnosis, with the right approach to treatment, rectal cancer still has good outcomes.

In this video, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center experts address issues such as ways to avoid the need for a colostomy, preserve female patients' sexual function, and prevent other side effects of colorectal cancer treatment. {partial transcript} I think it’s clear that whether you have radiation therapy, chemotherapy or any combination thereof, it is a difficult process for people. Can we talk about the quality of life and how that fits within the decision making process as to what might be the right course of treatment that might be? I’m particularly interested in quality of life and late effects after treatment – particularly after radiation therapy. However, I think in terms of the decision-making initially – about the course of treatment the patient will take on – is dependent upon the cure of the cancer and the quality of life. In the end, we would like to maintain the quality of life. I do believe one of the things radiation therapy can do, if given preoperatively, it can hopefully make it easier to allow a patient with a very low-lying rectal cancer where there is a very high risk of having to remove the rectum and anus and end up with a colostomy. In many cases, we are able to allow for the tumor to shrink. This allows for Dr. Guillem to do a surgery where he can actually put things back together again and not end up with the colostomy
Cure Bowel Cancer and what to except after surgery

Client is a 53 year old male. This was a Stage 3 tumor to the lower bowel (close to the rectum and almost total closure) it measured 70mmx50mm. In 8 weeks we managed to reduce the size to just 5mm. Without a massive reduction in size a reversal was impossible. So imagine the size of a potato down to a pea. It was done doing a program of 98% Natural Therapies and making his life chemical free. Nothing spread to the lymph nodes although several were removed. This client received the all clear in fact and is awaiting a surgery date for a reversal. This surprised his doctors as it had perforated the bowel wall and there was evidence of spots on the lungs, also clear. Chemo and Radiation pre-surgery as this is how this client arrived to me. His belief system was set in place that he needed it. So we met with chemo intravenously in place. He also had decided to the surgery no matter what. The after effects of the surgery have caused more problems than anything. The prostate has been effected and no desire for sex caused by the 10cm incision running along the pubic bone where the tumor was removed. Remember they take the margin they decide on at time of detection and the plan is made then. Chemo poisoning is still affecting energy levels and it is impossible to have a good diet until reversal due to only having the use of the small bowel. Your doctors do not warn of post surgery issues so ask questions, get support for all appointments and do not believe everything you are told. Research and KNOW you can cure yourself of anything if you put your mind to it. This gentleman has said with hindsight he probably would have continued with the natural therapies program and not done surgery. In his words- I'm very upset about the after effects the surgery has had on me. I have no interest in sex I don't feel like sex and if I was they had told that could be a side effect after surgery I may have not gone ahead with it, I feel that I was only told a small amount of information by the doctors and that really pissed me off. who wants to be with a guy who has no interest in sex?? This is what to except after bowel surgery and how a bag change works. I am Paula Langford. I have been a Natural Health Therapist for 25 years. I specialise in "CANCER CONSULTING" The cost involved in this case over the 12 weeks (pre and post surgery) was my initial AU$3000 consultation and 2 days spent with me in Cairns Australia.

Rectal Cancer
 
01:49
Rectal cancer is the growth of abnormal cancerous cells in the lower part of the colon. Symptoms can include a change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea or constipation, rectal bleeding, stomachache, loss of appetite, weight loss, and fatigue. Treatment is based largely on the stage of the cancer “Once we know what the stage is, if they need chemo and radiation then we prefer to get them up front. They get the chemo/radiation, we wait for six weeks, then we do the surgery and after that then they get more chemo,” says Dr. Janette Gaw, a colorectal surgeon on the Lee Memorial Health System medical staff. The American Cancer Society estimates about 40,000 new cases of rectal cancer will occur this year. You’re more likely to develop rectal cancer if you have a history of colon polyps or a family history of colorectal cancer. Other risk factors include being over 50, having previous colorectal cancer, or – for women – previous cancer of the ovaries, breast, or lining of the uterus. “In our community we’re very fortunate, we have a very, very good relationship with gastroenterologist, the oncologist and the radiation oncologist. We coordinate the care very quickly so that people can get seen, evaluated, and a plan is made amongst the team and then we move on with the plan,” says Dr. Gaw. There are typically four standard treatments for rectal cancer: surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy. The team approach to treatment has been proven to lead to a more positive prognosis for the patient. “It definitely enhances the outcome, that has been proven. A team that works together makes your outcome better,” says Dr. Gaw.

Memorial Sloan Kettering physicians treat a high number of people with rectal cancer each year. {partial transcript} Speaking of anatomy, the differences between colon cancer and rectal cancer, what are some of the issues that come into play? There are some side effects that may come as a result of surgery on rectal cancer? Yes, as pointed out by Dr. Saltz and as you have alluded to with the anatomy – imagine the abdominal cavity being more-or-less a watermelon; when we e are operating in the abdomen, we are operating in the pope, the pink part of that abdomen. As you narrow down into the male pelvis it is usually more challenging. In contradistinction to a women’s wider pelvis, the male pelvis is far narrower and is surrounded by vessels that perfuse the legs, nerves that are important for bladder and sexual function. It’s an intimate narrowed space, as pointed out by Leonard. What’s required is that appreciation, level of training, and high volume that is required to do that procedure well. We know for many large experiences world wide, that the first time, the approach has to be done perfectly.

Indication SIR-Spheres microspheres are indicated for the treatment of unresectable metastatic liver tumors from primary colorectal cancer with adjuvant intra-hepatic artery chemotherapy (IHAC) of FUDR (Floxuridine). Important Safety Information Almost all treatments and drugs produce unwanted side effects. Most side effects following a Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) procedure are minor, but a small number can be serious. Every patient is different in how he or she reacts to a treatment. Many patients experience abdominal pain or tightness in their abdomen, nausea and loss of appetite which normally subsides within a week. Patients also develop a mild fever that may last for up to a week, and fatigue which may last for several weeks. In rare instances, a small number of microspheres may inadvertently reach other organs in the body, such as the gallbladder, stomach, intestine, lung, or pancreas. If SIR-Spheres microspheres reach these organs, they may cause inflammation and potentially ulceration. These complications are rare, but if they do occur they may require additional medical treatment. Please contact your health care professional about your condition and additional information concerning SIR-Spheres microspheres. www.sirtex.com/risk

Five years ago, Michele Longabough was diagnosed with anal cancer. At first, she ignored her anal cancer symptoms, and the cancer spread. When her cancer returned, her doctors in Kansas recommended that she seek anal cancer treatment at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Today, Michele is cancer-free, but she drives to MD Anderson from Kansas every 90 days for follow-up appointments. “The confidence that I feel in the care that I receive here … can’t be measured,” she says.

Precision Is Important For Rectal Cancer Radiation Treatment
 
01:46
When radiation therapy is recommended for treating rectal cancer, it involves a complex planning process that targets the cancer and the areas in which the cancer might be hiding, such as lymph nodes and surrounding tissues. It also is important to keep the dose of radiation as low as possible to the nearby normal tissues, such as the bladder, bowel and hips. Dr Brian Lawenda and his medical physicist, Carrie Mason, explain how this is done.

Past concerns that doctors and patients had about radiation have been resolved. One concern is that the radiation would cause a new cancer, but we now know that this occurs only in extremely rare cases often decades after the treatment, and we are able to detect these types of cancer sooner. Incontinence used to be a concern, but in modern times this side effect is more often associated with radical prostatectomy than with radiation. It is rare to get incontinence from radiation therapy. Intestinal burns were a concern with older radiation therapy, but modern technology is more accurate and FDA approved treatments are available to protect the rectum from radiation. 2:14 Short-term side effects of radiation therapy. Mild to moderate fatigue can be a side effect of radiation therapy. Radiation therapy can cause soreness around the area being treated by radiation. If this side effect becomes intolerable, men will often take a holiday from the radiation treatment and resume at a later date. Long-term radiation protocols can be inconvenient since many forms of radiation have to be administered five days a week for a few months. 3:12 Long-term side effects. Impotence can develop in the long term from radiation therapy. It is common. Occurring in up to 50% of men treated with radiation therapy. After treatment, men will experience dry orgasms since the prostate is what creates semen. Men may become infertile after treatment, although having children through artificial insemination is typically still possible. 4:17 Rare side effects. In rare cases, urethral scarring can occur which can cause a blockage called a urethral stricture. The treatment for this can in some cases cause incontinence. Treatment for strictures should be performed by specialists. The bladder base can get irritated from radiation therapy, and this can cause greater urinary urgency, greater frequency, and waking up in the middle of the night to urinate more often. If these problems are preexisting, they can be made worse by radiation therapy. 5:57 Side effects are less common when the treatment is performed by a competent radiation therapist.
