Re: Guidelines Urge Exercise for Cancer Patients, Survivors

Marion,

Helen and I were down to London to see my GI surgeon and it was decided to immediately have surgery for my stomach problems. I'll be admitted tomorrow afternoon and have the surgery Sunday. Hopefully this should fix my problems. My digestive system has completely shut down finally and this needs to be done ASAP.

The doctor figures that the passage to the intestine is blocked by radiation damage during the treatment for the bile duct cancer tumor that was treated. Life is good. Time to heal.

I've had a blockage problem at the exit from the stomach to the intestine ever since the transplant was done. It steadily grew a little worse each month until it finally became unbearable, and to the point where a gastric bypass that entails a loop of intestine from the stomach to the intestine needs to be built. The liver and the pancreas need to be re-aligned also so its not an easy task. Finally I'll get the relief I require from this little nightmare!

I'll see you in a few weeks.

Raye......Good luck tomorrow.  I can't wait to hear that you were able to finally enjoy a great meal again.  I will be thinking of you and, as always....tons of hugs are coming your way.
