Re: Dumb neuropathy "improvement" question

I have diabetic Neuropathy and it is no fun. There are times it will be milder. When it flares I get a bag of ice and alternate my feet. It helps. I also take gabapentin it helps a lot also a mild tranquiliser helps. I have had Neuropathy for 5 years.

Re: Weak and cannot eat post surgery..?

Until your dad gets fitted right he will have leaks. I have an inverted stoma and use a Light convex bag by ...

Re: Weak and cannot eat post surgery..?

I didn’t have an appetitie for 6 weeks after surgery. I would eat very little lost 28 pounds. Was told by surgeon it happens. Now all I want to do is eat. This possibly could be your dad’s problem. I liked the ice cream and pudding. Maybe try some sweets. Good Luck

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

Hi. Mike,



I love salads and thought with the colostomy could never have one again. Do you eat all varitied of lettuce?

When you have the runs consant going, how do you handle it? I had a bag break. There has to be an easier way.

Re: Abscess

I notice you give advise on living with the pouch

It is not comfortable and I spend a lot of time empty it.

I don’t like it dirty. Does it ever slow and do you know of a bag that you hardly notice on?

Re: Abscess

Hi Miss Molly,
That is exactly what it feels like fatigue, loss of appetite,
It hurts not intolerable but very uncomfortable sometimes hurts more take Motrin and Tylenol.

Dr said to relax for couple weeks so abscess can take care of itself.

Did your abscess resolve itself?
