THe main opening on the stoma and then when I lift my stoma up there is an opening that really is not part of the main stoma. I was told that it was part of the whol...

About Sunlight

One good thing about living in Arizona....sunlight. A friend is staying with me for about a month and yesterday she dragged me outside and said I needed to be in the sun, if only for 20 minutes. I have been sick this week, on top of the cancer, I have a nasty cold. But being out in the sun for those...

Re:Fleet phospho soda survey

Have them try it with Sprite. Fleets soda has a lemon taste like Sprite does and it masks the taste.

Bleeding

I have become my own expert about my ostomy. I am not sure how much medical support you all get, but I have found it is very difficult to get here in Arizona. I have home health care, but getting an ostomy specialist is hard and it seems only my surgeon knows about ostomies. I have made many calls t...

Hi Tia! I am new posting here and am post resection and tumor removal. They want to do a "mop up" Chemo like what you are doing. I am Stage 2-3, unsure because my nodes were radiated and were clear, but unsure if they were clear prior to radiation. Are you also post tumor removal? I read a story of ...

I had a massage before surgery and I could lay on my stomach, and now I...
