Well I made it over to England and back with no ill effects. I didn't find the long flight anymore tiring than usual. I was able to eat just about anything with no ill effects so I was very pleased, I even managed to gain a couple of pounds! Apart from the fact that it rained some part of everyday except 3 I enjoyed myself and seeing family and friends. Had lots of good walks on the moors even in the rain, we Brits do not let rain stop play!
I saw the doc. last week for my first check since treatment, she said everything looked good. She did tell me to start taking Metamucil everyday to add bulk. She said my rectum would have shrunk due to the radiation and I needed more fibre bulk to stretch it? I am a bit confused seeing as my bowels are working regularily no constipation at all and was wondering if anyone else has been advised to use Metamucil?
My thoughts are with all of you especially those of you just starting on this treatment. I will have to catch up on the posts I missed while away.
