MIRAFIBER - MALTODEXTRIN

Hello Everyone, My quality of life was challenged by excessive stool elimination (10 to 20 times a day). I could not keep food in my system for more than 30 minutes. I felt constant urge/pressure. I had amazing results using miraFIBER caplets but they no longer make them. They have the powder, but I...

Memory loss and neuropathy were my only real complaints until now... this constant urge to crap after eating is seriously cutting into my quality of life. I sp...

Post treatment crap-a-lot

Hello Everyone, Green Monkey here... Trying my best to live a "normal" life post rectal cancer (ileostomy reversed). My quality of life has gone way down due to the need to crap after eating - usually 20 to 30 minutes after a meal. So, I eat healthy but sparingly during the day. My evening...

Re: How much do you share on Facebook?

I post it all.... especially the cancer. I also blog about it. If it's OUT it doesn't weigh me down.

3 cancers, son's suicide, shitty husband, dating with a bag... it's all out there.

It works for me.

Brachytherapy at Johns Hopkins

This is my doctor discussing the treatment I received for a low level rectal tumor. I had a complete response to the radiation and it was well tolerated.
