Re: Help Please

Thanks, Laura, I read  both articles you sent and I am already down to not eating much at all. I have cut out meat, fried, and most veggies upset my stomach can't even eat rice or pasta anymore. Have also cut out bread. Being a type 2 Diabetic I also don't eat sugar. I love veggies but every time I try big upset the next day. Cannot do any type of bean, corn peas. I am big on chicken and turkey and baked potatoes. I also had to cross tuna salad off my list the tuna really is upsetting me. Will know more tomorrow after the colonoscopy. I am feeling better about the Remicade as I am hearing some things about it that are very good. One weird thing is I have never had pain. Thank goodness for that. Thanks for your concern, update after the test.

Re: Help Please

Hey Lainy,

coming to this late - I'm sorry.  But I'm glad to see you've rallied and got the support you needed.  What goes around comes around.

I know nothing about this except I know you are beloved and all of us here are behind you. Love, Love, Love. xoxoxx!

Re: Help Please

Lainy,
After reading this, I am wondering how today has gone.  You are such a support for all, that you deserve all the support you are getting.  Reading about the eating, i am wondering if you have a copy of "Beating Cancer One Bite at a Time" and "The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen"  both by Rebecca Katz.  Amazing recipes and the latter has lots of information about foods for combatting nausea, fatigue, etc.  The base of many is a broth she calls "Magic Mineral Broth".  I feel healthier just smelling it cooking in the kitchen!
We are all thinking of you and are there in spirit.
xxoo Kathy

Re: Help Please

Thanks Kathy, I posted tonight what the "therapy" is going to be and what the GI saw. I read some books a long time ago when Teddy had his CC but between my UC and Diabetes II there is so little now that I can eat I can't wrap my head around one more type of diet. I tell you growing older is not all its cracked to be. So, I have 5 DOCs. Endocrinologist, ONC, GI, GP and a Cardiac...just because. I told them all how do they think I have time to meet a nice man (for companionship) when they all keep me so busy!

Re: Help Please

Not a diet at all.......just some delicious recipes....I am not a cook..but there are favorites of mine in these books that I repeat over and over and convince myself I am eating healthily.  It's such an effort to alter diet habits!!!

You certainly have your entourage of doctors!  The only one I went to faithfully, who saved my life, is moving to Texas (why???).  He and his wife have no children but he certainly has given life to many, many.  I have two friends who go to him also and we say we are going together on a yearly escape to Texas to see him.

I hope this week goes by without a hitch and you are back feeling a great deal better.  I am with you on the aging process.  I keep thinking this is just a temporary condition and I'll be right back with healthy knees and straight back and no problems at all!

Re: Help Please

Hi. That is what happened with our ONC. Teddy had him for his 5 1/2 years with CC then I had him for less than a year and he retired. I actually had tears that he was retiring...in front of him even though I found it extremely hard to go to his office after T passed.
I always say these are the Golden Years they just need a little polishing now and then!
