Colon Cancer fused to sacrum

I was diagnosed with colon cancer 22 years ago at the age of 28. At the time they took out my rectum and gave me a j-pouch which was supposed to act as a rectum. Recently I was diagnosed with colon cancer again, in the j-pouch. I was supposed to have an ileostomy, but as it turned out they could not remove the tumour as it is fused high in the sacrum. I was given a colostomy. I have been told that I have had my lifetime allotment of radiation... is cyberknife a possibility for me?
