Thats a good start Denise..I'm proud of you! Just take baby steps and with each small step you will hopefully see a change for the better. Yes...black stools all of the time does not sound good. Glad to hear your getting the colonoscopy done...pain in the A$$(literally), but better to be safe than sorry! Orange juice is good for you...so drink it down. Hang in there..
Love...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)

Where I get my treatments they have a pharmacy that has Ensure. I only pay $7 for a case.It is offered to all the cancer pts at this price. It has all the nutrients needed. See if your Center offers this. John(FNHL-1-4A-5-10)
