Re: Positive Cologuard testing?

Green Tea:

Thanks for posting that link. I forwarded it to my youngest brother who tested positive for cancer recently and he just got back to me with a "that was a much better explaination than the Dr gave him. He is getting a scope the 27th June. Hoping he isn't going to join this club.:(

Re: Radiation induced menopause

I didn't have menopause from radiation, but the normal way. Didn't take hormones, but found some natural remedies for the hot flashes. Maybe it was mental, but they seemed to help some. One I remember was soy milk, also Evening Primrose and I found a homeopathic mixture that was purported to relieve...

Re: SNOW DAY - in the SEATTLE area!

weisssoccermom, I enjoyed some of your snow yesterday, as there was a storm chaser driving around Seattle streaming live views of the city. Very pretty! And the trees north of town were gorgeous!!

Re: SLIGHTLY OFF TOPIC Milkweed Sap for Skin Cancer

A caution on the milkweed sap- years ago my mother got into some of it and developed quite a reaction. I don't remember details but she required a doctors treatment. It probably was her just being allergic, but I have left the milkweed to the monarchs since.

Re: Marijuana is helping with my bathroom trips

Lucky for you that you live in a state where this is possible to obtain. Not everyone can get it. You'd be busted by our city cops for even having a little bit of it. I've never tried it, but know that medical benefits from it can be amazing.

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I use the 11 o'clock tab to burp the pouch. This can be dangerous if it's not just air puffing up. It's also useful to remove the pouch if you are using closed end systems and need to change the whole pouch for clean one.

Re: Temp Ileosotmy bag

I think it is a lot dependent on location. In my case, tumor was very close to anal opening, so mine is permanent. Further up, there is enough colon to reconnect after some time.

Re: My forum family

I'm so sorry for your loss! My family has been wounded by suicide, as well. My 16 yo niece and 36 yo sister both took their lives with a gun about 5 years apart. This was in '93 and '98 and we still grieve for them. I hope you can get thru this painful time. Blessings....

Re: Prep question

I used some kind of pill for my last prep. It was easy and worked well, though there were about 30 of them to take over about 12 hours. No nasty drinks, just water or clear soft drinks.

Re: I'm new here

Sounds more like an ovarian cyst. Not necessarily cancerous. Just try deep breathing and relax for now. Most of what a person worries about never happens. Sorry you have to wait, though.

Re: Colostomy Leaking Since Surgery - 8 Days

GGRRR! I am not a litigious person, but this surgeon is p*s*ing me off so much I would sue the pants off him and put him out of surgery forever. Your restraint in deals with him is admirable, I would not be so nice. Will continue to pray this situation gets better and the reversal comes quickly.
