Re: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy After CRT

Thanks you guys! I believe you don't find all your answers in one place so I really hope by more consults and research here and papers I will be confident in being a candidate for HBOT also. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0167814005004974 https://www.hyperbaricmedicalsolutio...

Re: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy After CRT

I am glad it is working for you so quick. The faster you heal the better. I read the same benefits. I am not done researching for sure. I just got one opinion and will discuss it more with some other consults because I initially thought it would be good for me. Can you post links to papers you've r...

Re: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy After CRT

Neuropathy in feet and hands seems improved after 4 2hour treatments at 2.5 atmospheres of oxygen. Possible placebo effect, but Ill take it. My research indicates cancer cells thrive in hypoxia and that hbot does not encourage their growth or spread. For me, the healing of rectal ulcerations, and re...

Re: Colostomy and Gas Pains

This helps to solidify my position to end my life via an exit bag rather than have a surgery that leaves me with a colostomy. Yes. So rather than have a surgery that will leave you with a colostomy, you are currently incontinent. And to evacuate completely, you need to either lie in a bathtub or on...

Re: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy After CRT

Perfect timing for you to mention HBOT, Sophy! Thank you!!! I have been researching more about this the past few days and found my hospital offers it. I’m starting Monday. 2 hrs a day/5 days a week for 2-3 months. My insides are FRIED (ulceration, necrotic tissue) and I am pretty much incontinent, ...

Re: Colostomy and Gas Pains

For those with Colostomies, not iloeostomies, do you get recurrent once a week gas pains that are painful and just discomforting? I think what happens to me if I don't go for the whole day, the same day i get whirring noises in my stomach and I know its gas, because I feel like it farts or releases...
