Gads but I hate to discuss this stuff in public.
Suffice to say that one is not ever really alone?
If not, please go to the link and write to me directly and privately and we can discuss details.
I guess I have managed to grow some offense muscles. They gave me 80 radiation sessions. The first radiologist lied to me about possible side effects. I put myself into some sort of trance. I took zero meds until halfway thru.
I thought seriously about stopping once it became obvious I had been given fairy tales in place of answers to questions. I took a week off to contemplate my fate.
I can help you a little, maybe, by explaining what helped me and what did not. It took FOUR years before I could use toilet paper again. Difficult place to revisit.
You ought to wear a pad if the leakage makes you uncomfortable (gads, that reads like a doctor speaks .. I just figured if it leaked out the front end, it was p and from the back end, it had to be pooh.
Do you know Kegel exercises? Look them up, ask for a radiation therapist who will help and show you how along with other things. Those bottom end muscles have been tortured. Any cillia you might have had below is likely vaporized away.
If the doctors hadnt done what they did on purpose, I would have been suffering in a burn unit.
Seriously, recheck your diet too. Enzymes helped as did mapping out good bathrooms (Neiman Marcus yes, Big Lots no). There were a couple of times when I had to zip back to my car and be sitting on towels for the drive home. The first time I cried like a baby.
Enzymes are good. Ever heard of adrenal fatigue? Replace dairy, if you can. It makes mucus.
Dont worry. Be proactive as possible. Thanx for sending the note.
