        Hi all, I am 3 1/2 years survivor of colorectal cancer, stage 3.  I am having horrid problems with gas, and bowel problems Having frequent liquid stools, horrid gas,  and occasional bowel incontinence.  Does anyone have these problems?

          Hi Elaine....I am almost 3 years out from ileostomy reversal.  Plain and simple, nothing works! Eat what you want, and have some Imodium AD and a prescription for Lomotil.  I take 3 IAD initially then add Lomotil and IAD as needed. The bowel that is left is short.......and so is life! God Bless.........Fran

              Are you kidding me?  Get a surgeon and an oncologist specializing in colon cancer.........ASAP!   You need to take control, and save your life..........Love, and God Bless Fran

I would NOT let you defer treatments, you have to BEAT THE BEAST..............God Bless you, Fran

                    Hi and love to all.............its been a longgggggg time since I have been on here!  I hope you are all doing well. My last pet scan and cts are all good as well as my cea levels, but during the last 2 weeks I am having horrible bloating and uncontrollable gas. I was reanastamosed, and for the last year stools were normal, now I go from normal to awful rapid transit. Does anyone here have these same problems...
