Hi, sounds kinda familiar to me, but I was just dx with colorectal cancer 14 monnths ago.  I had oral chemo, radiation and chemo.  I almost died from the diarrhea.

Now I am doing well, 6 months out from reanastomasis of my bowel.  Some good days, some bad days.......but I thank God I am alive~  and I am gonna eat what I want, lol!

Who know....God and I pray alot to Jesus, Mary and St. Peregrine, the patron saint of cancer.

God Bless You and your wife.....Fran

Colorectal cancer, usually referred to as carcinoma or gut cancer, may be a cancer from uncontrolled cell growth within the colon or body part (parts of the big intestine), or within the appendix. Genetic analysis shows that colon and body part tumours square measure primarily genetically identical cancer. Symptoms of body part cancer usually embody body part haemorrhage and anemia that square measure typically related to weight loss and changes in gut habits.
