    Hello everyone,
    I have been having some really weird symptoms and am currently waiting on getting in to see a Gastroenterologist. I have a question regarding those of you who were diagnosed with rectal cancer. Did you have a hard time sitting?

    I have had varied stools, bloating, some weight loss, difficulty emptying my bowels, etc.
    Thank you in advance for everything
