Re: rectal spasms - tenesmus?

To Colon Girl,

I just had spasms again last week after my colonoscopy and also a scope of my rectal stump which caused the spasms! What helps me is sitting on a heating pad and also a pill called Soma which is muscle relaxer and then throw in a few Oxy's.

Good Luck!

Re: pants post ileostomy- first time shopping

I have found it easier to wear elastic waist clothes, like Chico's. And I have several other elastic waist pants. I do have a pair of stretchy jeans that I LOVE too!

Re: Now accepting applications for 2014 Colondar models

Hello. I read this call for applications and I must admit to much curiousity about why there is an age limit. I mean no disrespect with my question; I simply want to learn the reasoning behind the guidelines. Thank you! Jean Jean that is a good question and I see you are new to the Forum, so welcom...

Re: Scholarships offered to attend Call on Congress 2013

Re: Colon, Breast , & Ovarian Connection

Glad to hear from you! I can say from experience that there is a very big connection with ColoRectal and Ovarian, in fact I had an elevated CA125 tumor marker for Ovarian and I also had an elevated CEA. In fact they thought I had Ovarian at first, but later determined it was Rectal. They even gave m...
