Hi everyone. Thank you for the kind welcome comments and answers to my question. I've already discovered the "bathroom diet". I was hoping to regain the weight lost from purges for the colonoscopy and surgery, and not eating after the surgery. But haven't seemed to be able to add more than a pound or two of the 10 I lost during that time.
Forgot to mention the reason I had the colonoscopy in the first place was they found blood in my stool during a routine workup. With my fathers history they took the best approach and ordered the scope. Most of the time I feel incredibly fortunate that they caught it when they did--as you all know there are no symptoms. Lately, however, I've been struggling with the emotional issues of cancer, so just started speaking with a counsler who has experience with cancer patients.
