shocked   shocked shocked I will be having surgery agien on new years eve.This time it is on my back.The infection I had in my back has caused damage to my L3 and L4 vertabra and it is starting to cause problams with my nerve.With all of the cold weather and snow we have been having I have been in alot of pain for over a week.My bowels have been doing good but I still have diarrea most day in fact on the days that I do not I only go once a day and then I feel bad.Before all of this happened I was constapated all the time and I would start feeling bad after 2 weeks of not going so it feels strang that if I don`t go more then once a day I feel the same.Any way hope every one on this forum is doing good and I hope you all have a merry Christmas.

mom9mom I'm so sorry to hear you've been suffering! Has the infection gone now? and hows the nerve problem? What surgery did you actually have? and how are you feeling now?  I really hope you will soon feel better I know all surgerys different but I felt much better by the 5th week so hang in there it's early days yet.

I echo Miss UK's well wishes. I hope you're finally feeling better mom9mom. You've had such a rough road, for a year now. I am hoping this was your last surgery.

Check in if you feel up to it.
Marsky/Mary's story.....
- Diagnosed with rectal cancer, April 1999 - Stage I, no treatment necessary
(5 hour colon resection: 90% sigmoid removed, 15 inches of colon removed, gall bladder removed, given temporary colostomy)
- Colostomy reversal, June 1999
- Left with IBS/D symptoms, multiple bm's every day
- On a low residue diet at least 75% of the time
- Takes Colace 50 mg each evening

All in all I do okay, I just use the bathroom A LOT! But I survived and beat cancer!

sorry to hear you had such a difficult time...I hope things are getting better! Stay possitive and set small goals until you are back to normal.
