Re: Pre-dx Burning Mouth Syndrome / Taste Change

I concur with CRguy, I did not have any of the burning mouth syndrome. In fact I had no symptoms, any test that should have been a red flag for colon cancer came back negative or normal. I had bleeding hemorrhoids, my PCP figured those bleeding hemorrhoids were going to be my excuse for getting my b...

Re: Weight

Weight Watcher's is also a good choice, to lose weight and believe it or not to possible gain weight. They push healthy eating along with a support system, weekly meeting or more often if you need it.

Re: Hello Guys! Need your advice here

Chances are you are okay, butt anytime you have blood coming from your rectal, it should be checked out. You need a colonoscopy. And yes, let your Dr know colon cancer does run in your family.

To cheer her on as she roller skated across the USA to help raise money and awareness for getting colon cancer under the age of 50. From there it evolved int...
