internal radiation

Hi, The diarrhea continues to be a problem for me and I completed my treatments years ago. There is this prescription stuff called Questrin (I think that is the spelling) and it works pretty good. Until I found this going out to eat was a problem. I can count on this stuff most of the time. All things considered, I will take the diarrhea over the cancer. Hang in there. I know this all isn't pleasant but it is almost over and hopefully when you look back on this years from now it will just be a blip in your life (OK, maybe bigger than a blip but not much bigger!). If you have any other questions about the internal feel free to e-mail me at [email protected].

Internal radiation January 7

I too have been through the internal radiation for three days. It all seems like a blur to me. I didn't have a pump, but they kept me full of meds. I remember, everyday, asking the nurse, what is this for, what is this for, what is this for. I think I had to swallow about 10 pills a day. Of course, like I said it was all a blur. I think they kept me doped up, so I wouldn't get agitated. I wasn't on a liquid diet, but I remember not eating too much. I can't believe I can't remember too much of it. I had it 03/02. My son lent me his game boy, I took a book, and my BF came over every day. Of course your visitors have to sit like 6 feet away from you. He brought me my favorite soda Big Red. The nurses can't come in but 15 minutes a day. So they gave me a big tub of ice, with all kinds of drinks in it, to help myself. I didn't even pick up the book. The gameboy, I tried but lost interest. I just had the tv on the whole time, and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Taking it out wasn't as bad as I expected either. My nurse told me she couldn't tell me what it felt like, but heard it was like having a baby. I was sooo scared after that. I took the pain medicine they gave me. And you know what, it wasn't that bad at all. It seemed to me like when you pull a tampon out that wasn't soaked enough, kind of dry. Like that. not painful at all, of course I was on pain medicine so who knows haha

I'll keep you in my
