Donna! That is so scarey and heartbreaking for that family!! To think I was minutes away from death from something so painful and all because I was embarrassed. You are so right!! Listen to your body!! The thing is, I knew this as well as anyone could have. Still, I didn't do what I should have done!! Gone to the doctor, do not collect $200, do not pass GO!!! Apparently we've all had our "war stories", but mine was completely preventable had I said something after the first week. My surgeon said there was no way I could have passed what was there by the time she saw me.
RT, I should have never been embarrassed to talk to the dr no matter what it was about
, but I was. I learned a valuable lesson about
that! And yes! Thank God I took my cell phone into the bathroom! I do it every single time now!!!
SE, I posted this in hopes of even one person who is having a difficult time with side effects to take notice. You are so right! Prune juice is great and if someone doesn't like it, but is a coffee drinker, you can add it to your coffee and not taste the prune juice! I like eating them, but they can cause gas that is not too comfortable!
Well there is one thing for sure! I HAVE talked about
bodily functions way too much for the day!
