LARS website

BUMP ... My experience is the LARS simply sucks and you should check out the topics discussing this and the potential outcomes/solutions on this discussion forum. There is a tremendous amount of info that most doctors will sadly never tell you... Cmarie03 - My suggestion, too, would be to start educ...

Re: Lingering fatigue and changes in stool

I had fatigue for about two years after the end of chemo. I think it was due to the damage caused to the bowel by the chemotherapy regimen. After chemo, the bowel needs time to recover in order to start digesting food like it used to. Since chemo likely destroyed most of the "good" bacteri...

Re: Phuong is the new ColonClub President !

Phuong, congratulations on your new position! I know you'll do a great job. I have two questions for you. (1.) In your capacity as Colon Club president, could you do something about fixing up the out-of-date pages on the website? For example, the page on Board of Directors doesn't have several of th...

Re: If you want prayer stop in here!

Based on what I learned here and warnings from doctors saying Chemoradiation could be pretty hard, I made a 28-day craft and hung it on the walk - my hubby turns over a numbered “card” daily to get an encouragement from me or our children...

Re: Long flights with cancer/chemo
