Thanks to all for the good thoughts. For those of you not familiar with my story here it goes:
Diagnosed in 3/03 with rectal cancer stage 3, (2 out of 12 nodes positive). Pre-op chemo and radiation with surgery on 6/03 with temp. ileostomy. Reversal on 8/03 and then only 4 out of 12 chemo treatments because of diarrhea resulting in hospitalization. Since then I have been living in the loo with mult. BM's, diarrhea and incontinence. My butt was always sore. Surgery on 1/14/04 for permanent colostomy to improve my quality of life. I am now home after returning to the hospital twice for a post op ileus. I have been hospitalized 10 times in the last 19 mos. But, right now I am NED and adjusting to my new body. My family has been great and hubby and I will be going on a cruise in March.
I think of you all often and pray for everyone on this site.
