Hi all,

As of May 3rd, I am a one year breast cancer survivor. Yay! DONE forever...   Having said that, I have an issue that I'm hoping isn't a symptom. I've had bowel habit changes for quite a few months and increasingly, but still intermittently flattened stools on one side. Is that something I should be concerned about? I SO don't want to mention it to my oncologist if it's nothing. I'm trying to walk away from cancer, shaking it off forever. I'm sure you can all relate. I appreciate any advice. 

                                                                                                                                        Thanks much,

                                                                                                                                           Victoria

Hi Victoria

 

Happy for you on the breast issue. as for your present concern, I have no certain knowledge. However, you should google IBS (irritable Bowl Syndrom) first, and then check this site:

I am sure others have better knowledge and will be adding their expertise and experience, if any.

 

My advice: talk to your oncologist. Serious issues are curable when detected at their early stages. If not serious, you will get a peace of mind.

 

Wish you all the best, and hope your concern is baseless.

Better safe than sorry ... Run it by your doctor.  He might want to send you for a colonoscopy. ...Alex
