          Hi Val,42. It has gotten a bit better still have some bad periods with it all. How is the radiation and chemo going for you ? I too changed my surgeon. I didnt like his bedside manners and he has been set from day one one removing my entire bowel and didnt seem to answer my questions they way I would like. I have since changed doctors and feel better about the situation now going foward.
