Don't ever have major surgery at the hospital here in Wichita Falls now that the two former hospitals have merged. The care and results are down from about a B to a D minus. Some doctors are fine and even some nurses BUT much of the support personnel is dreadful in action and professionalism. On three different occasions, the person drawing blood for tests couln't find a vein right away. The result was extreme pain, tissue damage and even loss of the use of my right arm for a period of time. Also, the cardiologist overdosed me on Coumadin and it took 3 hours to stop the bleeding with 2 units of blood. The oncolgist and radiologist caused a bowel perforation. I could go on but what is the point?View Thread
My husband died 2/3/4 of colon cancer. August 2011 I became vegan on a dare and 2/3 12 I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was surprised! The Right Colectomy was (done well) 3/2/12 and I healed in 2 days. My surgeon was astounded-- so was I. My history did not indicate that was possible.
Please, if your husband is having rectal bleeding please get him a colonoscopy asap...My husband was diagnoased just a year ago with no signs or symptoms except for some bleeding right before his colonoscopy, stage 3 rectal cancer and was 39, since then, his cancer after lots of treatments and radiation has now spread to entire liver, both lungs, and is in his bloodstream. The doctors list him as terminal at age 40. Now we are facing a death sentence the doctors say, I just wish we had some kind of sign so we could have caught this sooner. Please. Also, check out colonclub.com.View Thread
Everyone here needs to go to foodincmovie.com and look at this two minute trailer...the DVD is well worth the purchase because it contains forty minutes of deleted scenes and reveals information not shown in this two-minute preview. Then it is advisable to go to truthinlabeling .com for information that will really surprise you.View Thread
QUESTION FOR THE DOCTOR! i once had a severe urgency to go to the bathroom and i experienced the most painful bowel movement ever. sometime afterwards I had problems with thin stools and not being able to go to the bathroom at all and pain so severe i could not sit for any period of time .my doctor suggested a colonoscopy which revealed nothing and i then was told to see a surgeon i told him of the symptoms and he prescribed a salve (nitro based) which didn't work. next he performed a sphinxterotomy which revealed a fissure and a fistula. (which was not found during the colonoscopy?) he said he had never encountered a problem where the area was so tight and contracted. this was june 16th! I am still in severe pain and taking a pain pill daily. i t feels as though there is a internal lump in my rectum when i do a self exam(externally of course) can you help? Thanks for your Reply!View Thread
