Re: Help. Squirt bottle recommendations?

If you do use a bidet at home, then maybe consider looking at a BioBidet travel unit ? https://biobidet.com/products/tp-70-new-travel-bidet I believe others here have talked about this in the past. I have a bidet at home so have not looked into their at home bidet toilet seats, yet ! I agree with &q...

Re: Best Prep for Colonoscopy - Pepopik worked for a wimpy me!

I bought a 2 pack box of Pico Salax today at a Shoppers Drug Mart for about $28 Cdn. Google the Canadian website and availability for more info. I do not use online pharmacies, but WalMart, Costco, Shoppers, London Drugs, Rexall, Pharmasave are all shown to carry it as well as many grocery chain sto...

Re: Best Prep for Colonoscopy - Pepopik worked for a wimpy me!

The original Pico Salax powder sachets continue to be available in Canada at their reasonable price point. Why the US regulatory bodies seem to have a problem getting this item to patients at a reasonable cost, defies logic. I have not tried the new version in a bottle, but see no reason to start no...

Re: Dr Henry Lynch

It is always very sad when we lose pioneers in the medical fields.
They have dedicated themselves to helping many and while I do not have Lynch syndrome
I know a number of people who have benefited from being aware they had it,
and were able to take proactive measures.

RIP Dr. Lynch

Re: Tightness in hips-radiation?

I had 6 week radiation before surgery and also have a long history of lower back hip and gluteal tightness. I exercised a lot and also tried chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and true physiotherapy/rehab. Everything helped a bit, but nothing did it all. I also tried muscle relaxants and anti-inflam...

Re: The things people say to cancer patients

Upon receiving what I felt was a discourteous comment from a semi-friend, I asked them if they truly KNEW what I had been through ? Their answer was " umm I guess not really " My reply was to put up my hand ( talk to the hand style ) and I turned and walked away have not spoken to / with t...

Re: Update - chemo & Sloan/HAI appt

As a new member, you would need a few more approved posts before you could send / receive PMs to other members. There is a minimum number before members are approved here, which limits the amount of "noise" and spammers on this forum. Actually I challenge you to find ANY spam on this forum !

Welcome to the forum.

Your post sounds promising and very interesting.
PLEASE give us more information on the exact studies and mechanism for the treatments you have been dealing with.
I believe there would be a lot of support for new hope here, after all this is a support forum.

Re: Should I be having this much muscle cramping post-op?

I have read somewhere something which stated that a lot of lower back pain may be due to some kind of bacterial infection in people. I did have some infection after my surgeries so I wonder if that is what caused my problems. I hope you are able to find relief for your problem. My pain was resolved ...
