Re: ileostomy

Chickspeed: Skin irritation or itching can be a warning signal that liquid decal material is beginning to undermine and seep under the water - necessitating a change. Skin irritating and itching can also be due to skin surrounding the aroma being exposed to the digestive enzymes of the liquid fecal ...

Re: O/T Need to vent

“ You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.” - Bob Marley - Ann: Wow! And Double Wowza ! While the ongoing saga with your (separated) husband is unnerving and dramatic and difficult to read as an observer from afar, I am beyond impressed with your personal resolve and...

Re: Inconclusive Biopsy

Personally, I lean towards the recommendation of your medical team to undergo the lobectomy. Why? Your lung module grew markedly in size from 6 mm to 12 mm with a corresponding rise in CEA; the appearance of the nodule as described as round and regular in appearance - is more characteristic of a pro...

Re: Tom marsilje

When I saw Tom’s name as the title of this thread, my heart went cold. The Heaven’s stars shine brighter in the deep night sky tonight with Tom’s spiritual inclusion. It is said that God/Higher Power sprinkles the earth with physically-bodied angels who exist and live amongst us on this earth. I hav...

Re: Ileostomy woesh

Mike: Anne (Aqx99) has given you astute advice and suggestions for what to include in a portable ostomy kit - for those occasions when you are away from home and experience an unexpected wafer leak or digestive upset. I carry a small velcrowed lunch tote (6” x 4” x 2”) to pack my emergency supply ki...

Re: CEA and thyroid

Diane: I echo Weissoccermom’s advice and comments. While I can appreciate your over-riding focus on your CEA value and wanting to see the CEA score lower to normal range, adding thyroid replacement is a more delicate and complex science than calling your oncologist to prescribe a low dose of thyroid...

Re: O/T They Say Things Come In Threes...Update #3/Photo Shoot of My Furbaby Chloe

Tag Team Lucille (peanut) and Ethyl (BS): This thread is morphing into a creative expose at its best. The talent expressed is right up there with Late Night televisions’s best (Jimmy Kimmel, Steve Colbert, Noah Trevor). Who would have thought that BS’s original post to problem-solve Miss Chloe’s que...

Re: O/T Need to vent

Aqx99: I understand your compassion for not wanting to leave your husband “high and dry” in hesitating to take claim of the van and remove him from your insurance policy. But I hear a loud cacophony of loud warning bells. Danger. Danger. You need to act to protect YOU from possible financial risk as...

Re: Adhesion surgery for blockages

Kiwi: Two peas in a pod. I just underwent similar surgery two days ago for a small bowel obstruction due to a spider’s web of adhesions. Like you, I had been bothered by repeated episodes. This was my 4 th small bowel obstruction in 5 months - the prior episodes resolved with placement of an NG tube...

Re: O/T They Say Things Come In Threes...Update #3/Photo Shoot of My Furbaby Chloe

BS and Peanut: The NG tube and gut decompression was not alleviating the small bowel obstruction, so I underwent a relatively simple surgery yesterday to snip the offending adhesions. Ordeal over. Relief. I am a bit woozy as I type . . . But I am smiling a broad smile seeing the photograph of famous...

Re: Ileostomy woes

Heiders: It sounds as though you are finding your “mojo” with your ostomy pouching and methodology in changing and placing in the skin. Whoo Hoo ! It really is a matter of individualizing a methodology that worked for you, the topography of your abdomen, and your skin. Each ostomy manufacturer has t...

Peanut: Your little Fonzie is becoming an adolescent. Gotta love the puppy years. Orjen is a fabulous kibble. You cannot go wrong with Orjen. I highly recommend the Fromm line of kibble. It is a 4 Star brand, sourced in Wisconsin. Molly loves the lamb and red lentil kibble formula. It also has the s...

This thread keeps me smiling. I am in the hospital myself with yet another small bowel obstruction due to scar tissue. I use the oral rinse that you can add to your pets drinking water. Molly drinks a LOT of water o the dental rinse in her water has a measureable positive effect. I also have her tee...

Re: Surgery

Joe: Not to minimize your emotional angst regarding a potential colostomy, but I can share with you that I have had a permanent ileostomy for 6 years and it is no big deal. Modern ostomy products are quite advanced. The seal with that skin is air tight and water tight. There is absolutely no odor. T...
