My Mom is going through radiation (brachytherapy) and only has 3 sessions. Anyone know why this would make her leak fluids?

On her last session, they could not go in due to inflammation. They don't even know if the cancer is gone. But during the course of her brachytherapy, she is leaking clear fluids out from her rectum. She has rectal cancer. We've asked the doctors and no one seems to know what this may be stemming from. Has anyone ever heard of this before? When she sits, it's fine. But when she stands up, it constantly just leaks where she has to wear something and I'm hoping this won't be a permanent condition.

Thanks..
