  • Hi Gilly,

    Glad you're back home, and that it went well, and that the result was so good. I also had bowel problems to start with, but they did have to remove a section. My bowel started working after about 6 days, but had 'wind-type' pains for a few days, but it settled fairly well. If you're not on any other 'bowel' medicine, you could try windeze capsules, they worked a treat for me before surgery.

    Take care,

  • Wonderful news, Gilly.

    You'll recover all the more quickly for the relief of the borderline status!

    Very best wishes,

  • Hi Gilly

    Brilliant news!

    For really bad constipation try lactusol liquid with bisacodyl tablets. The combination worked wonders for me. The tabs are prescription only and they nudge a sluggish bowel into action and the lactulose soften everything. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

  • Hi Gilly

    So glad you had such a good diagnosis, if there is such a thing! I was borderline in 2002. I didn't need chemo either, just monitoring with examinations and CA125 every month at first. I remember the bowel problems though, but it soon passes (if you'll forgive the pun ;-O)

    Good Luck and take this time now to get stronger after your op and appreciate all the things you value in your life!

    Love Wendy xx
