It's funny what things become important to us while riding the ovarian cancer wave. I have been fighting constipation for the last couple of months. I have tried so many things and finally have been "normal" for the last week. I am so happy and relieved. Since my CA 125 went up a couple of months ago, I have been more aware of everything and having bowel problems was not reassuring. My latest "cocktail" is two stool softeners at night and three doses of fiber powder daily, usually in my coffee.
When I went to the bathroom this morning I saw exactly what Dr. Oz described as what poop should look like. It is just such a relief. I was really worried because I had even tried a laxative and that didn't work.
Sorry for the graphics; my cousin tells me I talk more about poop than anyone she knows.
As I said it's amazing what makes me happy these days!
