Re: Happy World Ostomy Day!

So since it's World Ostomy Day, I thought I'd tell you about my friend Stewie. He was named after the baby on Family Guy because sometimes he is cute, sometimes he makes me laugh, but oftentimes he is just a little a$$hole. Hope you are having an awesome weekend my friends. :D Love the name and so ...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Re: Possible stenosis at anastomosis

Hi Susie, Hope all goes well when you see your doctor but it sounds like your personal anatomy is just a bit quirky (in a good way I'm sure!) Anything new and outside the norm is always stressful. I echo your comments, Karen aka Miss Molly is a treasured resource of information and reassurance to al...

Re: Mop up chemo experiences

Glad to hear that you're feeling better. I react to anything unusual now too, things that I would ignore before get scrutinized and researched. If output is a lot I worry about dehydration, if it's too little I worry about blockage... it's enough to drive one bonkers! Take care and keep on feeling b...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Good luck with the remaining test results! I hope everything comes back normal and clean as a whistle so you can continue to enjoy your summer! I have no idea how bloodwork can look perfect when there are mets and rising CEA but that's how mine has been for awhile now. I've never been NED so I'm gra...
