Re: Reversal Thread

Good luck, hope there are no problems.

You may already know this, butt will pass along just in case. Some people keep a change of clothes either in their car of office , or both. Just in case :shock:

Re: Question on pains few weeks after end of Folfox

Yes, let us know how the CT goes. So sorry you were over looked. I usually try to look for 0 responsers and like BS bump people back up. I too don't have a lot of offer. I was told any pain lasting longer than 2 weeks needs to be checked out. If you are constipated a lot, try increasing your water i...

Re: Digestive issues after rectal cancer treatment

So sorry you are dealing with this problem. I have a permanent colostomy because of radiation damage, and having to spend 3+ hours on toilet anytime I ate, so I do feel for you. BRAT (Bananas, Rice, Apple, Toast) has been known to help people with bathroom issues. Many people have found daily enemas...

Re: Diagnosed stage 4 cc from CT

Thanks for replies. They also said it was inoperable because I had spots on both sides of liver. Not sure where you are at, butt at some major cancer treatment centers, many people have had great success with a HAI (Hepatic Arterial Infusion) procedure. A round disc that is actually put in the live...

Re: Diagnosed stage 4 cc from CT

Hi and welcome, You might want to get a PET scan, if that tumor is cancerous, that test should confirm it. An MRI might be better for determining if the spot in your liver is cancerous. Since you are dealing with a (possible) stage IV diagnoses, I would recommend getting a 2nd opinion at a major can...

Re: Bowel resection recovery

Hi and welcome, sorry for the reason you are here. Since you are 2 weeks out from surgery and experiencing pain, call the surgeon's office. Could be nothing serious, or something that needs medical attention.

Do you know what stage you are,

Re: Mom's surgery is in two days!

. . . She mentioned that she has no pain in her rectum anymore (thank goodness!) cause that is where she had pain before. Now that her rectum is taken out, I think she will feel more comfortable going places, xo Sounds like she is doing better. I too had my rectum removed (I now have a Barbie butt ...

Re: 41 W/ Lg Flat Polyp, upcoming resection scares

I'm in the same boat. Resection scheduled for 11/7 followed by 12 weeks with ileostomy. I'm having so much anxiety about the surgery, really scared about embarassing ostomy accidents and worried about the reversal surgery too. Does EVERYONE have accidents with their ileostomy? Is the reversal reall...

Re: New here - Nervous and worried.

Probably best to get it check out. Might want to up your liquid/water intake, could help with a few issues.

What kind of a diet do you think you eat?

Ask your Onc, but I don't think they want you to. Will also say, I don't believe they will talk you out of it either. Will Say, FOLFOX really frizzed my hair. Dying your hair could make it worse.

Hope this helps,
