UPDATE!! So my husband called me today with great news! He finally pooped!! http://www.bccancer.bc.ca/nutrition-sit ... ockage.pdf
I'm so relieved right now . . . if anyone has other suggestions for a good diet for partial bowel obstruction, please let me know . . .
Just excerpting your post here ... BUTT .... THAT IS GREAT NEWS !!!!!!!
ONLY on this forum can we all celebrate ... POOP
seriously I am VERY glad that hubby is doing better and totally impressed you found a link to my own cancer agency
BUTT hey ... they did do right by me so far
As far as good info and suggestions :
My B-I-L and I had the exact same CRC diagnosis, surgeon / hospital / surgery /initial chemo etc. etc. etc.
HE ... had multiple mega partial blockages / back into hospital / considering permanent stoma for about 4 years after resection
Since then (2004 resection) doing well, NO blockages.
ME ... never had a blockage BUT had two pretty close calls which eventually resolved with a MEGA ....
Don't know how and why he had hits and misses and I didn't ?
demographics, lifestyles, diets, activity etc. pretty much similar
AND we are neighbours so it cannot be something in the water !!!!
Sending MEGA posi+++++ VIBES to you and hubby
No More Blockages is your mantra !
Cheers and best wishes
