    Hello everyone first off Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to everyone and myself also happy birthday jan 3 47 years young. I have decided to get a second opinion at a place closer to home and also closer for small family and few friends I have. I am having another scan thursday after xmas to compare with last and have already had some pathology reports faxed.There was several reasons for trying another place,but I wont go into all that. I am maintaining eating,but some days the food doesnt seam to digest and my stomach feels bloated and colon bag gives off alot of air,It also feels like slight heartburn and when I belch it taste like the old food some stool does come out both ways and is usually more liquidy,I go to sleep and wake up with some relief and the bag fills pretty fast when I wake.I feel hungry now butalso bloated whats good to eat or just drink a ensure and a few vanila wavers and go to sleep

    Hi, I wanted to give an update (I’m Mr J’s sister)..all of the problems Mr J was having were finally figured out. Unfortunately, he has a mass that is constricting the colon. He had surgery Monday to put a colostomy in and this should alleviate some of his issues. The doctor saw some smaller masses as well in his lower abdomen and took samples from several to help give better pathology reports. At this point, he will be returning to the oncologist to find out what the next step is. Keeping our fingers crossed that the docs have some good options. Please send good thoughts his way! Thanks for all your suggestions and support.

    Great Mr. J….lot’s of trial and error are part of the game. We played around with the food intake and found t that some things worked better than others. However, undigested food vomited after three days sure seem to indicate that it has not been digested. Hopefully, the dietician is able to work out a few issues with you.
    Best wishes,
    Marion
