Re: Found mass at husbands first colonoscopy today

Hi and welcome. See a "board certified colon rectal surgeon" especially if it is rectal cancer. I was told by my GI doc I had colon cancer. It was the surgeon who told me it was actually rectal cancer. If your DH does indeed have rectal cancer, radiations is the normal protocol prior to su...

Re: Constipation vs Bowel Blockage whats the difference?

Lee do you do anything to have a BM? I don't like to take medicine unless I have too. No, I just suffered through it, butt I stop eating and try to avoid liquids, as I can/do throw them ups. Again, I've never been to the ER for this. I always tell DH what is happening. Somewhere in our medicine cab...

Re: Constipation vs Bowel Blockage whats the difference?

So what are the symptoms of a blockage? How do you know when to go see a doctor? What's the difference from feeling uncomfortable vs pain and needing to go to the ER? Is there a difference between a partial blockage and a full blockage? Could I still have a blockage after taking a laxative? Thank y...

Re: How young is too young for COLONOSCOPY

I see from your sig line DH was diagnosed at age 49 stage 2A. Try being diagnosed at age29 with stage IV. Her aunt died before seeing age 50. Sorry when it that young, the danger of the procedure are insignificant compare to a cancer diagnoses prior to the age of 30 or 40. Just my humble opinion. I ...

Re: Maybe a problem ...

. . . If you are concerned, find another GI doc, many will cut the cost if you pay cash for there services. That I can do. I am just afraid that once the diagnosis is on the books, I will have trouble should I get employment in the future. When my father passes, I will be essentially homeless. Than...

Re: Maybe a problem ...

I'm sorry you have such a negative view of doctors (and maybe life in general). Personally, my doctors SAVED my life. This includes my primary doctor who referred me to a GI doctor who found my tumor. I appreciated the extra mile my surgeon took with me, prior to my surgery and all my follow up care...

Re: Maybe a problem ...

Hi and welcome, How old are you? Does colon cancer run in your family? Where are you (USA or some other country)? If you are in the USA, look into ObamaCare. Since you are unemployed, it should cost you little to nothing. Please understand, we are not doctors, just survivors and family members. This...

Re: Foods to avoid during chemotherapy

A bland diet was easiest for me to tolerate, supplemented by protein shakes. Ditto Especially regarding nausea. Once I was gagging down water, chemo nurse not...
