Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Hi. Mike,



I love salads and thought with the colostomy could never have one again. Do you eat all varitied of lettuce?

When you have the runs consant going, how do you handle it? I had a bag break. There has to be an easier way.

Re: Abscess

I notice you give advise on living with the pouch

It is not comfortable and I spend a lot of time empty it.

I don’t like it dirty. Does it ever slow and do you know of a bag that you hardly notice on?

Re: Abscess

Hi Miss Molly,
That is exactly what it feels like fatigue, loss of appetite,
It hurts not intolerable but very uncomfortable sometimes hurts more take Motrin and Tylenol.

Dr said to relax for couple weeks so abscess can take care of itself.

Did your abscess resolve itself?

Re: PERMANENT COLOSTOMY/VS RESTRUCTURE

ExactlyI agree if the Sphincters were not involved it would be all together different. Of course, I would like a reversal but I accept the colostomy as it would be easier on me and hopefully dont need Radiation. My family is rasied my girls are in their 40s. I will be fine. Please tell me about the ...

Re: Just Diagnosed

Hi Mike, Soccer Mom and Lee. Thanks for helping me make sense out of all this medical talk. I noticed the Ulta Sound is 1.9 I'm and MRI 4 I'm. If the sphincter muscle was not involved it could have been a reversal. My surgeon is A board certified colorectal surgeon and he said this is the best way t...
