I was diagnosed in March 2001. Type 3/stage 3 I think. Surgery and chemo. Removed section of colon. no colostomy bag. Cancer free still but also still experience "empty outs" every 2-3 weeks. I have eliminated the obvious stuff - no nuts, seeds, steak, other dense meats, spicy food, etc.
Wondering if anyone else is experiencing bad days as long as I am and if they found a certain food type that seemed to cause it.
Also wondering if anyone else has short term memory issues still this far out.
not complaining - better than the alternative certainly - but am getting frustrated with these bad days and no correlation between what I eat and the upset bowel.
Suggestions? I don't have insurance so going to a dietician is not an option right now - doubt they would help much anyway - the only advice I got before was to introduce foods one at a time to see what was OK to eat again. (Gee thanks)
