Re: Will my BM's ever return to normal?

The Toad: That you have had recent gall bladder surgery is likely a contributor to your episodes of urgency. The gallbladder contributes bike salts that emulsify fats during the digestive process. It is often wise to limit the intake and eating of foods with higher fat contents for 3-4 months follow...

Re: Feet swelling up??

Ebv60: As your wife has had a vascular ultrasound study that has ruled out a blood clot or obstruction of a vein or artery, another possibility for dependent edema would be lymphatic congestion. The lymphatic system has an extensive network of vascularization similar to that of the vessels and vascu...

Re: Need suggestions

JDInNC: You have to recognize that internet support forums cast a wide net of people. The scrupulous and the non-scrupulous. People who are lonely and isolated or have aspects of mental illness can visit and engage in support forums without having any inkling of the particular disease entity that is...

Re: O/T - Doctor's office jacking up med prices - SO ANGRY!

Ridiculous and outlandish. The lack of pricing transparency in health care is pervasive and troubling. You go into a restaurant and order from a menu with prices listed. You go into a doctor's office or hospital and have no earthly idea of the charges and fees for service. I am on a prescription nar...

Re: Picking a surge

Rob: I would not discount the expertise of the surgeon who is "eligible" to be certified in colon-rectal surgery. This surgeon has completed all necessary residencies and fellowships in colon rectal surgery and is waiting to take the certification exam. "Eligible" means that the ...

Re: Blockage Question

Axq99: A loop ileostomy is more prone to food bolus blockages due to its position high up the digestive tract, where food types may need to exit the small aperature of the stoma before being fully digested and broken down. Things to avoid: 1. Stringy and fibrous foods. This includes foods such as as...

Re: Blockage Question

Aqx99: In the case of a partial small bowel obstruction (SBO), the portion of intestine adjacent to the restriction/blockage generally becomes swollen and inflamed. I sense is that the residual pain and internal sensations you are feeling is correlated to residual inflammation and swelling. That you...

Re: ClareAnn how are you doing?

I have been thinking of AnnClare as well.

I have a sense of worry in the absence of her posting.

Ann, I am thinking of you and sending healing energy toward Louisiana.

Re: Skin prep for ileostomy

Chickspeed: Your surgeon's suggestion of a spray and spritz of Flovent is A-OK. Flovent is similar in action to Benadryl and will lessen skin inflammation due to irritation. Skin irritation is more apt with a loop ileostomy due to the location of the stoma placement higher up the small intestine tha...

Re: Skin prep for ileostomy

Chickspeed: You likely have a temporary loop ileostomy. Know that this ostomy is the more difficult stoma to pouch successfully as compared to an end ileostomy or colostomy. The best ostomy product to limit leaks is an adaptic ring- these go by the names of Ekin Cohesive Seal (by Convatech) and the ...
