Re: What happened to thread for caretakers and loved ones?

You will recall some epic flame wars and a whole lotta " shit from shinola " since you have been here. I do not recall any epic flame war on this forum. I recall a few flame wars, but they were relatively mild mannered as compared to some flame wars I observed on other Internet forums. Ma...

Re: How safe is Coffee?

Coffee is not safe.
Coffee is a strong laxative.

P.S. I did not know about this effect prior to my surgery. :(

You can find several slightly different versions of Miralax+Gatorade prep on the Internet.
I do not believe that one is significantly better than the others.

Re: Prep suggestions?

Miralax/Ducolax prep- instructions easily found on Internet. Rather than Gatorade, I drink Smart Water . Apparently peoples' favorite Ducolax+Miralax+Gatorade is getting a "Tasters Choice" award. :) Once I even prepared a spreadsheet to compare tonicity of PegLyte and Miralax+Gatorade. I ...

Re: This SUCKS, and we haven’t even begun to fight

Almost every hospital has a program of psychological support for spouses.
Could you ask them to refer you to such program?

Re: Mom has possible leak—anecdotes welcome

Update—it was a hematoma and not a leak!!! I could just cry with happiness. It's not that simple. In my case large hematoma has liquified and got infected. So hematoma's drain was actually draining quite a lot of stuff. On the other hand my leak got encapsulated (I am not sure about the right term)...

It probably depends on your staging.
For example I never had an oncologist.

Re: Coffee...yes or no?

Prior to my right hemicolectomy I had no clue that coffee had laxative effect. Then after my surgery it took me a while to figure this out. Unfortunately this effect is rather strong in my case. When I go to the office I need a few cups of coffee through the day, that would result to a few trips to ...

Cured, do you understand that often such decisions by jury contradict established scientific facts?
I prefer one meta-study article in a mainstream peer reviewed journal over 10 decisions of US juries.
