I asked if over the counter pain pills like acetaminophen would help and he said it can so maybe I will try that. I don't know if it would cause constipation though. Maybe it would even out the diarrhea.
I lost two more pounds. I was doing well and almost hitting my calorie goal every day until this weekend when I didn't eat enough. I'm behind today so trying to get more in before bed.
Probably ProctoFoam. I got it and never used it because honestly the contraption was so complicated LOL...and yes I suffered through radiation and the burns were unbearable during the bathroom and lingered for a while after that. Once Radiation Treatment was over after 28 days the pain subsided after about 3 weeks exactly from going to the bathroom. Unfortunately all the ointments, calmoseptine, aquafor, witch hazel, anything under the sun that you can think of will not make a huge difference. It's going to hurt no matter what when you have a bowel movement and the lingering pain afterwards, calmoseptine might help with or aquafor, but unfortunately not really well. Taking Hydrocodone was my relief if it was super painful, I didn't take it much because honestly I was scared of getting addicted, but I took it when it was absolutely horrible lingering pain.
You are just going to have to truck through it my friend, you can do it. I am sorry your going through it, it was rough and I will never forget it. Stay strong, press on and once its over, get your LAR and hopefully that's it. Ileostomy and reversal of ileostomy is a whole other adventure.
