Re: Surviving radiation for rectal cancer

Also been there. I am sorry to hear you are going through this. I did deep breathing while having BMs. I also did sitz baths 2-3 times a day with Domeboro Astringent powder in them. This gave me some relief but I still had a lot of pain. It started getting a better a few weeks after treatment ended...

Re: All Looking Pretty Good

Sounds like great news. So basically 100% shrinkage. My radiation guy mentioned that that happens in a relatively small number of cases. That chemo + radiation is powerful stuff. Do you even need surgery now? Thanks for that. My surgeon wishes to have a look (short scope) and take samples for a bio...

All Looking Pretty Good

GREAT NEWS :D :D After my Chemo-Radiation and the terrible time '..trying to poo..' the latest MRI has good news. We were worried as a basic examination after all of this found lumps and thickening. The MRI result shows it sounds like mostly scar tissue. Parts of the summary. FINDINGS: Tumour: The p...

Re: Salami

But is it a good salami? What sort of mean breath does it create? Haha - Only joking. But wish to share that to myself it is no big deal and over time we all need to figure out a healthy diet. It is great that you care. As a husband I can confirm we respond really well to more loving and less nursin...

Re: Urgent 2 Week Referral For Colonoscopy - I'm Scared.

Sorry to hear that Anne.
It is great you are having the colonoscopy and remember there are many things that cause similar symptoms. Try looking at it as a good solution to find out what is up and give you healing.

'It is Tough' I know, but we care.
You are in my prayers.

Re: Liver lung mets rectal cancer UK

Hi,
I am so sorry to hear about that.
I cannot help other than feel for you and let you know we care. The medical profession do fight for your fiance as best they can.
Please place aside the 'whys?' love one another and love life to it's fullest.

You are in my prayers.

Re: Did anyone get so nervous before a colonoscopy they constipated themselves?

You will be fine. Haha, believe me your bowel will empty following the medication they give you. The actual scope treatment is a breeze with the worst bit being the needle they put in. if you get to see the screen it is jolly interesting although you forget so much of what happened it is a bit like ...

Re: We Need Some Laughs Here: Reloaded 2018

Story when I was young...... I was always taught from a young age to tell the truth and never lie. Well our family was invited over, by a nice old lady from church, for a meal. Now it tasted awful..... True?! Then she asked me what I thought of it and I truthfully replied that it was pretty awful. W...
