[cancer] Just when you thought it was safe...

Under cut for digestive and medical TMI. You were warned.

I'm not kidding...


Sometimes the cancer stuff reaches out and taps me on the shoulder. Just to remind me that everything is not okay. Had a major lower GI failure today that resulted in three trips to the toilet, a load of laundry and a shower.


Kind of like being two years old again.

And there's nothing so disempowering and humiliating as loss of bowel control. I have to remember not to trust what I'm feeling down there, ever. I've just been lulled by almost a month of (for me) normal lower GI behavior.

Damned discouraging stuff.
