At this moment we should be in the tunnel going to France for a well deserved break, with the blessing of the onc while I wait for my referral to royal marsden to come through. What happens.....Tuesday evening I get excruciating stomach pains, and in the middle of the night I find of why when I get a good dose of 'the runs''. Finally dried up by lunch time, but still had some pains. Only ate 2bits of toast yesterday, and 4am today it starts again....... No train for me today. Now taking diacalm, but my stomach is so uncomfortable when I move... Is it the bug, the ascities or the cancer? How do we know? What do I do next? anyone know how frequently you take diacalm or the equivalent as I've lost the instructions in my pack? All advice gratefully received.
