Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Hi! The colostomy was reconnected when they operated the tumor and made an ileostomy instead. They used the same opening (so my ileo was on the left side).

All the best

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

So nice that you had 4 days without issues in a row! I hope it is just the start of a new normality. The hospital adviced lactulose when I was doing radiation. How is it going with training? Here it is autumn now and raining a lot. I try to run three times a week and do strength twice, but the weath...

Re: Rectal cancer stage IV

Today I got a scope and the results of the last cat scan and ecography. Everything is fine, CEA is 1.2. Next control in 6 months. :D Last week I ran a 10 km race, the same I ran two years ago before diagnosis. This time in 47 min, not quite my best time, but I am still very happy given the little tr...

Re: Bladder retention after major surgery

I had the same problem and it resolved after some weeks. At the beginning I could not even feel the bladder muscles and then could empty it by myself but not entirely. The surgeon explained that the nerves get damaged with low anterior resection and they will repair themselves eventually. I still do...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

When will you know the results of the last scan? I also had one on the 20th of August, light CAT to the chest and ecography to the liver. I will have a scope on the 4th of September and then get the answer. But I am not worried, if I am sick I will face it when it is real and not just a possibility....

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Hi,
I agree, it really helps with pain in the neck or the back to do core training. I did not run today but walked a lot (32000 steps) with my dog. Have you tried eating wild blueberries? It can really help the intestine.

Re: Thin scope for colonoscopy?

Hi, I had a colonscopy in November and they used a thinner scope because of the multiple surgeries. I did not have any sedation or painkillers and it was quick and pain free.

Re: Rectal cancer stage IV

Hi! Just dropping to say hallo. It is one year now since last surgery to remove a lung metastasis. Everything is still fine, I will have the next control in August, but that will be an x ray and ultrasound. No CAT scan this time. So, no news, good news! Soon leaving for a long drive to Italy and 6 w...

Re: Rectal cancer stage IV

Hi again,
today I had another scope and got the results from the last CAT scan. Everything is unchanged. Next scan in 6 months. Otherwise I am fine, here it is very cold and very good skiing conditions.

All the best
