Some good, non-cancer related news

Gday butt-buddies, hope you’re all well. It’s been a while since I’ve been on here (is that a bad thing?) but just wanted to share some good, non-cancer related news. I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned what I do, but I am a prosecutor for the state of New South Wales (Sydney is the state capital). ...

2yrs NED

2 years ago I woke up to the news that my ass-Cancer was successfully removed and I met my temporary stoma, Steve. Unfortunately, later that day I would also OD on morphine, requiring Narcan/Naloxone later that day but that’s another story. A few days later I would get my pathology results that I ha...

Re: Scared about bowel issues

Welcome to the forum but sorry you had to find us. You certainly did the right thing by making an appointment to see your doc. I would definitely recommend demanding another colonoscopy. There are a bunch of different things that could be causing your symptoms and the best way to rule all the common...

Re: Bowel prep - Does it ever get easier?!?!

Hi CAGirl, Sorry you had such a rough prep, but stoked that you got the all clear though. I’ve only used the one prep, the only thing that’s different is the flavour so I couldn’t comment on others sorry. This prep I made a conscious effort to start on the clear fluids earlier than required and I th...

Re: Bowel prep - Does it ever get easier?!?!

Haha I’m with Maggie - what an innappropriate name of GoLytely! They may as well call it ass-waterfall :shock: I’m at the back end <boom tish> of the second Litre of prep and I’m pleased to say that this prep has far and away been the easiest. Scope is the afternoon butt rest assured Maggie, I’ll le...

Re: Getting A Colonoscopy With (potential) Sleep Apnea

O Stoma Mia is correct. I just looked at my paperwork and it’s not on there either. Mine is tomorrow and although I HATE the prep (see my other post LOL), I love the sedation. Midazolam and a hint of Propofol is a great way to start/end a day, particularly with a healthy dose of IV fluids to make yo...

Bowel prep - Does it ever get easier?!?!

I’m 51 mins away from my first mouthful of Moviprep and I almost gagged when mixing it up. This will be my third (or fourth - I can’t remember) prep and I would rather have surgery a 100x over than go through another Bowel prep! The smell makes me think of sweaty jock straps and the aftermath like t...

Re: Ileostomy reversal experience?

Hi there, I’m 12 months out from mine (1yr2days to be precise) and I haven’t looked back. 1) Mine was 97 mins according to my discharge summary but my surgeon did say that my stoma was quite comfortable where it was and took a bit longer to separate so about an hour would sound right; 2) Far easier ...

Clean bloods and scans

Gday crew, Saw my onc this morning to get the results from last weeks CT scan and blood tests. Scans clean and bloods good. CEA was 2 which is what it’s been every 3mths since my initial surgery. Doc was stoked and put me on 6 monthly checkups and annual scans. Now - just need to get a clean bill of...

Re: My Mom’s Journey is Over

I’m so very sorry. Mum’s are extra special, and I miss mine every day!

Lee is right tagging the link to that thread. I hope you can find some solace in it, and the no doubt many memories you have of your dear Mum.

Re: Port Removal

So the GP confirmed it - the glue has stuck to the internal stitches :cry: He trimmed some of it but couldn’t remove it for risk of opening the whole wound. He gave me a dose of antibiotics to be on the safe side and I have to go back in a week to see whether there has been any improvement. I know I...
