My Father ‘n’ law is having a very hard time right now. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer in 2018. After resecting and removing the cancer he was later informed the cancer had spread to numerous places throughout his body.
He was given the option to have a Reversal. As a family we thought that would allow him to live a better life and do more with the family before he gets worse.
BOY we were wrong!! It’s been a year since the Reversal and we are at a lost for words. His bottom is blistered and feels like it’s on fire! He’s tried every cream and prescription cream known to man. Powders don’t seem work either or we haven’t came across a good one yet. After every bowel movement he has to take a shower and rinse off then uses a hair dryer to ensure his bottom is dry. Then moments later he’s back to square one with no relief.
Please help. Any word of advise is a blessing at this moment in our life
1) What kind of food or meals seem to help lesson constant stops to the restroom?
2) What drinks to avoid?
3) Currently takes OTC Imodium and a prescription to try and control the bowels but isn’t working!! “Constant acidic diarrhea”!!!
4) Butt creams or powder that have helped you?
5) Should he eat more “Small frequent meals”?
Please help and thank you fo listening.
