Radiation damage to small bowel

@becsbuddy I had radiation treatments after my rectal cancer surgery in 2001. My symptoms have been getting worse over the years. I am seeing another GI doctor at the University of Michigan hospital. I have been keeping records but haven't been able to pinpoint anything as yet. I'm going back to the doctor on March 28. He wants to do more testing. I've been living on Boost and very small amounts of food. I continue to lose weight. Thank you for your suggestions and good wishes. I truly appreciate it. Elaine

Hello @beanglow

I too see a GI doctor (and an endocrinologist) at Univ. of Michigan. I've had a rare form of cancer (neuroendocrine tumors) and after the first two surgeries, I went to Univ. of Michigan for the third surgery and I've also been very pleased with my doctors and the care there. I hope you have good results and get some answers to your problem.

When is your appointment at U of M?
