Symptoms following pelvic radiotherapy
For as many as 500,000 people the end of their cancer treatment doesn't mean the end of their cancer journey, with around 90,000 people experiencing chronic changes in lower gastrointestinal function including diarrhoea, faecal incontinence, urgency, flatulence, bleeding, hernia, adhesions, strictures, pain and fistula. BSG and Macmillan are working together to ensure those involved in the potential treatment and care of people with these issues are equipped with the relevant resources and information to support their patients. Macmillan are also working to empower patients to raise these often debilitating and embarrassing issues with health care professionals.

BSG Annual Report 2015-2016
We are delighted to present the 2015-2016 BSG Annual Review – the first we have published for some five years – as an illustration of the range of activities that the Society undertakes on your behalf. It has always seemed to us that one of the greatest attractions of gastroenterology as a specialty is its sheer breadth. Some of what we do will be familiar but certainly one of our aims is to showcase some of the less well-known areas of our activity.
