Re: Hello....

Welcome to this forum, Shauna. It is helpful that you have more than a layperson's understanding of anatomy, physiology and medical 'stuff', however this can work against you with being on the same page as your general physician, surgeon and every other medical professional you might encounter. Allo...

They didn't have the trapeze attachments on the beds where I was but they didn't need to as the beds were electric and they could do all sorts of tricks. So you could use the electric motor to raise your upper body and then roll to the side and swing your legs out. There were handrails on the upper...

Re: Just found out I have cancer

Last time I looked, 'supposed to be positive' wasn't a law. Having confidence and trust in your medical team of surgeon and oncologist, and their expertise and experience in producing optimal outcomes for your survivorship is far more important. Once you get your biopsy results, everything will fall...

When you get home to your own bed, AlexMichelle, the first thing you are going to miss is the convenient swing-away trapeze arm and bar that you've been using to heave yourself out of bed! You won't be doing any walking if you can't wiggle yourself out of bed without help.... :lol: Lots of muscles g...

I tell you that I am going to ask every single person I meet 40 yrs plus if they have had a colonoscopy. I am a colonoscopy advocate now. I feel like because this tumor was Stage 1, I have a job to go out and tell everyone to get a colonoscopy. If you're happy and you know it, share your meds!! Ain...

Re: Having open colorectal surgery 11/09/2017

One time when I was in hospital, a smal private hospital, I was walking around the wards and could hear this terrible moaning and groaning getting louder and louder like someone was being tortured. I asked the nurse what on earth was the matter and she said it was a woman in labour and about to give...

Re: Having open colorectal surgery 11/09/2017

You could go old-school and have a 'retro' hospital stay with a Bumper Crosswords book and
ya know, buzz the nurse each time you get stuck on a clue.....that will shorten your
stay.
