The gastro after effects of colorectal cancer
I am 5 years from my colo/rectal cancer diagnosis, I went through chemo and radiation, then wore an iliostomy bag for 6 months, then had that reversed, so no bag anymore, that was a hard transition, then 1 1/2 years after recovery they founds cancerous tumers on my liver, they were removed by surgery, no chemo this time, I am having lots of problems with diarrhea and loose stools, I also have no control when this happens, I think the radiation took away the feeling in my rectom, sometimes I’ll be walking around with stool in my pants and I don’t even know it, until I’ll start to smell something, sometimes it’s me, sometimes its not, but when its me, its so discouraging and embarrassing. Im 57 years old, I’m a hairdresser, I’m not due for retirement for 8-10 years. Help!!!
