Sorry to hear about your issues: with a similar treatment regime, I've just moved from an alternate day man to a daily man.
Part of it, I'm sure, depends on how close the cancer is to the wall of the bowel, but I suspect there's an element of luck, too.
Are you self-managing, or have you had GP / dietician / specialist help?

Hi Heenan 73
The symptoms are very similar to IBS, and as my wife has this problem she is very cautious with what she can or not eat.
As it is harder now for a control of the bowels due to the radiation, you got to eat foods that firm the stools.
This is foods in a fibreless diet which people reading this can find easy enough on the web
The downside is that I don't think I or others will ever be clear of the symptoms but they can be managed
The problems I have are minuscule to some of the people on here who have worse side affects.
Good luck to you and everyone living with PC.
