Re: What To Expect With Surgery

I was up and walking after a few days. I just walked 8 km the other day. Ive read it’s good to stimulate your bowels, however I’ve been having a lot of constipation issues. Maybe I rushed back to eating normal food. . For constipation issues, try a low fiber diet or for me, spinach or salad greens,...

Re: O/T - my furbaby has cancer....hard last weekend

I am so sorry for what you are going through right now and what you are about to go through. I feel your pain. We lost 2 furbabies last year, I suspect another one this year. Enjoy the time you have left with her, and yes know that you will be with her again in the next life. Hugs to you and your fa...

Re: Mom’s bag won’t stop leaking

Coloplast recommended putting it all on standing up vs lying down and even more interesting, they recommended putting the barrier directly over the stoma and not the wafer! I’m curious to try experimenting but of course now that the leak issues have gotten better I’m also scared to change it up! Ex...

Re: xeloda

Hi and welcome, So sorry for all that you are going through. For depression, can your doctor prescribe an anti anxiety or anti depression medicine?

Re: Mom’s bag won’t stop leaking

A special belt might also help. I have a hernia and I wear a special (Nu Hope) hernia belt that has a special opening that my bag goes through. Hollister makes about a 2 inch belt that attaches directly on to the bag and helps keep in the bag in place. Maybe something to consider. I believe that Kar...

Re: CT, PET scan

Hi, CT and PET scan are used for detection. However, do these scan cause the cancer to return because of the radiation? Thanks, Nate. They don't exactly cause the cancer to return (colon rectal cancer), butt it can "possible" cause a "new" type of cancer that can show up in abou...

Re: Encouragement and Hope

I wanted to pop on here and encourage those of you fighting this current battle with colon and rectal cancer that there is hope. I know that not everyone receives their healing from this horrible disease, but I am living proof that it can and does happen. 10 years ago I was given a 50/50 chance of ...
