    I have ileostomy done 3 yrs ago and the cancer has spread to my lungs and pelvic area. I am going for a higher dose of chemo using chemo iv pump starting next week as surgery is not an option now. Has anyone on chemo iv pump now? What is the reaction to your body?

    About 2 months ago I started to have pain, gas and feeling bloated. My pain starts out in my lower back and then comes around to my stomach and abdominal pain and then goes to my left side and up and down my back. Has anyone had this before? I am in a lot of pain and it seems to get worse when I eat. Also I have a appointment to talk to my GI doctor tomorrow afternoon on video chat and I am nervous about what she is going to say.

    So I have a question about what people use for procedure prep? As expected I have yearly flex sig procedures to check on my pouch and what is left of my small intestine. The prep I have been using involves 2 duxalox tablets 2 days before the procedure and then the day before drinking a 32 oz Gatorade with 7 capfuls of Mirilax in it. Following that with once more 32 oz Gatorade with the same on the day of the procedure. And of course clear li…Read more

    So confused about dr. asking me what I want to do when I do not understand my test results. I am supposed to know if I want to be referred to a specialist or wait another 6 months and have another EDG done. Most dr. in past just tell me what I need to do. Any knowledge of these results. I know The four fragments not good. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks

    Hello, randomly specific question. I had my colectomy about 9 years ago, and am doing well. I have gotten into surfing for the last two years, and I am surfing pretty much every day for an hour or two. I don't get board rash on my stomach, but I do get it over my scar (I have a "7 shaped" scar that goes up to my belly button and goes sideways towards where my ostomy used to be). I think my scar rash is happening because the scar is more de…Read more

    Hi there! I had a total colectomy 3 years ago. I’m still have issuing controlling my bowel movements... I am a nurse and it’s so tough to try to keep close to a bathroom while trying to care for others. What meds have worked for y’all to slow things down? I’m currently on Lomotil and Hycosamine but am starting to need more and more to have a normal day. Thank you!
