i have a lymphoma/19
AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
NOW HEAR THIS!
THE CONSTIPATION CRISIS HAS PASSED!!
Do I mean passed!!!
We have, I am told 28 feet of intestine and yesterday I reckon 29 feet of good waste turned bad, passed through mine en route to the Council Pant! The relief immeasurable and the effect uplifting.
The result of my Internet research, and discussion at the Hospital on CHEMO 2 Day, Wednesday, paved the way. My research showed bowels can get sluggish ,especially after surgery and this proved so in this case..
The Hospital responded by prescribing a natural drug pill that contained the ingredients. calcium phosphate, as a base, magnesium stearate, anslactose monohydrate to accompany on each pill 154mg of senna fruit, which equates to 7.5 mg of Sennoside B, the main mover!So that is the science with instructions not to take more than 2 in 24 hours. OBEY! I took my allowed 2 at 4pm and midnight on Wednesday. The first one eased the way for the events from 7am yesterday, that saw me make regular but fruitful trips to the toilet throughout to deposit various quantities of the stuff that had been my tormentor for 4/5 days. I took one further tablet yesterday at 5pm and tings are, glad to say back on track today.Take1/2 a day as necessary are my instructions, so today I will give it a miss and see if the organs can perform on their own.
My apologies if you found the subject not entirely edifying, but if you ever get to suffer, then it may be of assistance and avoid you having the days of grief I suffered.
The tablets are available at Pharmacies too, under the name commercially of ,SENOKOT ,by the way.My advice check first with a Physician before purchase to check they are right for your condition.
CHOP 2 PROGRESS.
A pleasure to report no side effects so far. I was advised by an oncologist yesterday, that my good energy levels are based on the Prednisolone tablets and to be prepared for a drop after they cease to be taken after 4 days. I will check this out, but forewarned is forearmed is it not? So today, business as usual, including watching the Ryder Cup! I could almost get to enjoy forced retirement, if hopefully the soldiers are winning their battles inside me. So far no worrying messages at all from the battle front so we go on with a Positive Mental Attitude, Focusing on all the things to be done after CHOP ends at the end of Oct, if we have a good result.
