I have to admit it's getting better

It's getting better all the time! I got home last night from spending three days admitted to the hospital for chemo cycle number four. Usually when I complete a chemo cycle I go through about a week of utter hell, with the boiling hot diarrhea combined with the anal fissure pain. This time ... almost nothing! The pain is maybe 1/5 what is usually is! I think that the fissure may even be 90% healed. Drinking lots and lots and lots of water, taking some high powered multivitamins, and adding probiotics to the routine, I think all these factors have helped with the boiling hot diarrhea that I USED to experience.

So, thank you everyone for your suggestions as I have posted so many whiney notes about my burning diarrhea problems. I took all the advice and it seems to have helped tremendously. Once again, the semi-colon family came to the rescue!!

    Hi Rodney,

    I'm glad you are home and that things are going better this time. Hopefully, the rest of your treatments will go as well.
