Del, I'm so sorry to hear about all of this. The suggestions given for your GI issues are all good ones and I hope that you can get some relief from that. Yes, stress can affect even the strongest stomach :(

Please know that you and your husband will be in my thoughts and prayers. I wish him the strength to fight and fight hard!

Take care :)

Just to add to the mention of peppermints. I just eat peppermint candies, portable and soothing. So sorry this mountain has been put into your life. I'll visualize you both reaching the summit and heading down the healing side.

Just don't walk too far from the house.... speaking from experience...

When my father was diagnosed with cancer, I went through a 96 pill bottle of imodium in three weeks. Didn't help much, but it was all I had at the time. I can tell you that my mother, who was my father's caretaker during his illness until his death, very much needed me. She needed my support, the things I did around the house while they were gone, and for me to be of some help taking care of Daddy, because it made him feel better to have me there too. Do you have anyone in your life who can be YOUR helper, Del? I say ask, because it really will help relieve the burden, especially with your food restrictions.

A few links to herbal stuff that may help your tummy more than Imodium.

Not really sure what your point was but taking walks is a huge stress reliever and gives a person some breaks from all the daily regimens that must be followed during treatments. You need to step outside and deep breath good air and have the sunshine hit your face for half an hour or so. Obviously if a person is having diarrhea, they should seek medical intervention because 3 weeks of that is not good in and of itself.

My point was that if you have intermittent diarrhea and you're a half mile from the house, you're not gonna make it back in time if you have to go. I was not disputing the therapeutic nature of the outdoors, in fact I agree with you. Such therapy becomes ineffective when you've crapped your pants. I was merely recommending she stay close to home.
