I had trouble with bowel movement after resection it was hard, painful to go I drank lots of water, days later I bled doing # 2 I drank prune juice and felt better. Then had diarrhea, every time I went it was painful burning, so doctor recomended preparationH ointment, was cancer free but came back, to make the story short I have had 4 surgeries, quimio, radiation, lost hair but grew again, now I am getting preventive quimio last surgery was June 26, 2013. Always ask questions, do not wonder, they will tell u the truth. Have positive thought, also prayer help a lot, do not be afraid, God is with you always. Take care.View Thread
