In brief: Depends on the
Treatment. If surgery and the rectum was removed and permanent colostomy, obviously no anal sex, rectal temps, suppositories.
If just radiation and biopsy, no particular restriction as long as complete healing has occurred. If diagnosed but not treated, activities restriction is the least of the problem. You need to get treatment options.
