    Thanks for the update, I am glad to know he is still alive and I hope the Onc can find a way to back off a bit on the treatments.

    What a bit relief to hear that!
    Thank you so much for your update! I'm so glad he is ok. I remember when my mum had the most severe side effects from chemo, she got the best result from that too!

    Please ask him to hang in there!

    Thanks --
    Thanks Jennie, here's to hoping I can ride the Folfiri wave like you did. I am having Folfiri as my mop-up chemotherapy after my September resection for rectal cancer. I have a temporary illiostomy so at least I won't have the actual affects of diarrhea but have been warned to watch out for dehydration. Thanks again.

    -dean

    maybe not
    hi dean,
    i still had chronic diarrhea with the ilioostomy, that is until my diet and supplements got it sorted. i would consider eating a mal and having its contents in the bag in under 5 minutes diarrhea like. i ended up in er really bad once and had a few close calls. got anal about diet, gut relief powders, slippery elm and probiotics. good luck and post away if you run into any problems.

    my onc always described the issues i was having as diarrhea while i had the bag on. she had another in intensive care as a result. you cannot let it get out of hand.

    hugs,
    pete

    Get well, Buzz!
    Thanks, Jennie, for updating everyone on Buzz. I just read this post today (Nov. 2) since I've been occupied with my own major health concerns.
    Buzz, if you're reading this, just wanted to say I'm glad to hear about you, sorry to hear that you've had such a bad time with the Folfiri, & I'm hoping that you either have by now or will very soon work something out with your oncologist so you can get some relief.

    I've had a hard time myself lately with pneumonia and learning from a CT in the hospital that I've had significant tumor growth & now I can't do anything about it until I fully heal from the pneumonia (they say another 3 -4 weeks before I can do any kind of chemo treatment).
    Buzz, remember that rope you used to talk about? Well, I've been trying hard to hang onto it- I hope you still are too, even as it's so very hard sometimes. I'm praying for ya...

    Hugs,
    Lisa

    Thanks Jennie...I've been worried about Buzz too.
    Lisa...I'm sorry you're having a hard time also. I'll be thinking of you in your "off chemo" time. Hang in there...I'm pullin for both of you!
