I will give a very brief rundown of how I got here on this journey.
A little over one year ago I was diagnosed with colon/rectal cancer. My tumor was large and located mainly in the rectum. I had a colostomy bag put in, 5 weeks radiation and chemo, My Big surgery where they removed my tumor, along with all my rectum, part of my colon and removed my colostomy and added an ileostomy. I then had 4 months of chemo, and another surgery to take out my ileostomy. This all took about a year.
Well about a week ago I was hospitalized with an obstruction. They almost had to do surgery which they really don't want to do because I already have enough scar tissue. What they have found is that I have a large area in my small intestines that is very damaged and narrow probably from the radiation. This means instead of being on a high fiber diet, which would be good for my cancer, I now have to be on a low residue diet. My doctor would prefer me to be on the strictest form of this diet and then maybe add a few foods back later, if I can tolerate it.
So this is my journey.......................
