Re: Isolation

Hi Dan, Welcome to Colon Talk. I have a stoma also, and have made adjustments along the way to manage the situation pretty well. There are numerous products available to make stoma living tolerable.

Re: We Need Some Laughs Here: Reloaded 2018

A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, right up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, "I would like to buy some cyanide." The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?" The lady replied, "I need it to poison my husband....

The first cat: one two three

And the second cat: un deux trios.
Which cat won?

Re: MSI or MSS

stu, Can only speak from my own experience. Apparently my tumor was tested at the time of resection. After reading here about the importance of knowing which situation you're in, I asked. First my oncologist, he brushed me off. Next my surgeon, who did some checking and found the answer, MSS. I susp...

Steve

Can certainly understand why you're feeling down. 21 days is a really long time. Hope the surgeon gets things working again.

Re: ER Visit

I'm frustrated on your behalf, DE. Seems like your medical team has failed you. GRRRR. Maybe try the BRAT diet? You probably know what it is, butt I'm including a link just in case. https://www.webmd.com/children/brat-diet. Is Carnation Instant Breakfast powder available in your area? That may be mo...
