i was diognosed with cola-rectal cancer i year and 5 months ago,i am now cancer free .i had 5 large polyps that were removed 2 of which were malignant ,i had to endure a temporary ileostomy for 10 weeks and went through many painfull operations.my body is still not exactly recovered ,im unable to have normal bowel movements,i have to take laxitives at least once a week due to my pelvic floor muscles not working properly. im wondering if anyone has gone through the same procedure or similiar to mine and would like to share their progress or concerns.maybe we could help eachother.
