Common Questions and Answers about Colon cancer vegan

colon

I don't know if i have Colon cancer eh. And i don't wish to see a doc and fool myself! i am just 15 years old, no heritate of it.
My apologies for the long post, and for cross-posting, I am new here and did not know there was a specific Colon Cancer group, originally posted in the general Cancer group. My 72 year-old father was diagnosed with colon cancer about 6 months ago. It is currently 5cm diameter (from 4.5cm at time of diagnosis, both measurements by CT), located in the sigmoid region, protruding into the lumen as well as infiltrating an adjacent section of wall of the small intestine.
It's not bad to take antioxidants during cancer treatment with the exception of radiation therapy. If more people went vegetarian or vegan cancer would come down A LOT (most cancers are aggrevated by meat usage), but that's not going to happen.
I have to stay on this diet, because my mother's twin died from colon cancer and they removed four polyps from me two years ago and I have a small diverticula. Other than the adhesions growing back and the severe pain from them, I am finally starting to feel almost normal. I am back on acid blockers, even after nissan fundoplication. Having gastroscope done when I return home. Is this a normal stool on a high fiber diet?
I did have a small time frame off and on where I was normal, having normal bowel movements and could eat whatever. What do I do? I am a vegan, I don't eat grains, even though I am not allergic to wheat/gluten nor have celiac, I eat raw food, exercise, drink water. I do what is right and healthy, but I don't go overboard on the health thing. (Please don't encourage me to eat meat/dairy, cheese, it is detrimental to me).
at first I pooped hard small pellets liked and I was worried about my stools so I tried to use something to checked on my stools whether there were blood in it, so when I did that the toilet bowl water changes to dark red or something, I suspect there is blood hidden inside my stools, I checked for symptoms like this it jus mention CANCER. I am only 16 with no records of bowel/anal/colon cancer! I am a vegan as well, I really had this changing type of bm!
Hi all, Some of you may know that I am interested in alternative and immune system supportive therapies for ovarian cancer. Yesterday I had a very interesting conversation with a doctor from the Oasis of Hope clinic in Mexico. They use extensive immune support therapies along with chemo to treat ovarian cancer. Some of these include vitamin C therapy, oxygen therapy, possibly hydrogen peroxide therapy along with a vegan diet, psychological support, etc to heal the 'whole' patient.
I am a 19 year old girl with a family history of cancer. I do not drink, smoke, or do drugs. The only pills that I take are the occasional Tylenol and a multivitamin everyday. I take the multivitamin because I wasn't eating enough milk or meat (I'm trying to go vegan) so I became a bit malnutritioned. For the past two weeks or so I have been feeling light headed, weak, very forgetful, and tired.
) Sigmoidoscopy Result = hemmrhoids internal due to straining, some irritation and redness but biopsies say no cancer 2.) Upper scope = some irritation and redness but biopsies say no cancer 3.) Mannometry = lower esophagus is weak causing the trapped air and pains (taking Aciphex and Gas X for this, avoiding gas causing/acid causing foods) 4.) Empty Stomach Study = stomach is emptying in a normal range 5.) Physical Therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction = not the cause of constipation.
” When it is, your liver and kidneys are designed to handle those “toxins” and will do so far better than anything someone tries to sell you. 2. Diets only work when they restrict calories. 3. Your colon is fine and does not deserve to be regularly “cleansed.” Colonics have been around since the early 1900’s (maybe earlier) and the fact that they are still being used is only evidence of the gullibility of humans. 4. Never trust something that claims to “strengthen the immune system.
My mother was diagnosed with colon cancer at 50, so I also saw the need to eliminate that possibility. I had that done yesterday and everything was fine. My gastroenterologist said it pretty much has to be IBS. So here I am today, researching IBS and learning what I can about it. I am willing to do pretty much anything, easy and hard, to get this manageable. I know I may never be 'healed' but if I can get back to living and working like I used to, I will be so happy. I have lost 25+ pounds.
My Dr said it is from all the stress I have been on however; I also think it's the meds, too. My older brother died of colon cancer several years ago and because these meds interfere with my bowel movements I am really getting scared so I am ready to tackle this. I have a colon appointment in several weeks so I only have 2 weeks to stay at the rehab. I had a colon treatment when I was on meds and the Dr said my colon was still dirty after drinking all of that stuff they give you.
I would also consider diverticulitis, colon polyps or cancer, inflammatory bowel disease or other forms of colitis. Imaging studies like a CT scan would be helpful in ruling out many of the major diagnoses. If negative, I would also consider a colonoscopy. Regarding the nausea, the endoscopy can rule out most of the upper GI diseases. Further evaluation can be done with an ultrasound to evaluate the liver and gallbladder, as well as a 24-hr pH study to definitively rule out GERD.
I am a 20 year old male, athletic build with sinusitis being only past medical history. There is a lot of cancer on my father’s side of the family but none on my mothers. During the summer, I started to develop stabbing abdominal cramps followed by mustard-yellow colored explosive diarrhea. The diarrhea was abnormally foul smelling, it floated, and seemed really acidic. When I wiped, the toilet paper would look almost neon yellow.
I recently had a colonoscopy to see about reversing what was supposed to be the temporary ileostomy and my intestines were so narrow they couldn't scope me and in the process the air that they tried to put in to see when they tried to scope me caused my colon to perforate and all the air was trapped in my upper body, putting a ridiculous amount of pressure on my lungs and chest so I couldn't breathe. I was hospitalized for a week and took about 5 weeks to recover from that.
I want to give background, this will be lengthy. Our mother is 68, has had a heart attack, several silent ones, colon cancer (which has been removed), congestive heart failure, and gall bladder removed. At one time, we think around 92-93, she had jaundice. She had lost a lot of weight at one point, but don't remember if they ever told us why. Her platelets had been down to 45,000 to 50,000 around June 1998. Because of all her problmes, her liver panel has been elevated for about 4 years.
What they are basically telling you is that the mass will be tested during your surgery to determine if there is cancer. If not, then the surgery proceeds in a normal fashion. However, if cancer is detected, then the surgery becomes the more tedious and cautious debulking procedure in which the surgeons try to locate and remove as much of the cancer as possible.
Ironicly my therapist was diagnosed with colon cancer and went threw kemo over the summer. I felt guilty going back to him and talking about my problems while he was so sick and probably thinks mine are all in my head. ...I just can't stand to live this way anymore, and I don't know what to do...I don't want to die, but I don't want to live like this anymore. Please if any one can help, at least a little????
I was misdiagnosed for 14 yrs and finally operated on in 2007 for deep infiltrating endometriosis, rectovaginal cyst, rare mensenteric cyst in the sigmoid colon, bladder resection and a presacral neurectomy. I had one of the top surgeons operate on me and that is key!! Excision surgery done by an Endo specialist is vital for any type of pain relief. There are only a handful of these specialist around the world for 179 million women affected by this disease.
most of the time I look 6 months pregnant and my boyfriend has just gotten used to it. =( I am athletic, I work out and eat very healthy (mainly vegan) and usually weight about 130-134 but now I weigh myself and its more like 146-149 =( I also have some lower back pain (always have) and hip pain and serious fatigue and some nausea at random times. I am not on birth control but have been on tons of different **** in my past.
I am trying to ruleout GI causes while waiting to hear about an Ultrasound date to rule out my biggest fear,ovarian cancer.2 weeks and have no date but expect it to be 8-20 weeks do to shortages of technitions.
No dairy, no meat. So it is an oil free vegan diet. You will understand if you read the book and /or his website. Also the DVD Forks Over Knives is interesting. My husband and I have switched to this lifestyle and actually prefer it now because we feel better. I think you would really benefit from it and you are not hungry. It moves food along the intestines faster because plants and whole grains are digested in a day while red meat takes 3 days for example.
why don't we hear more about it on the eveing news? why do we not know that the higher the animal products consumption the higher the cancer rate ( of all cancers)..why do we still continue to hear on the news that cancer has gotten better in certain areas of the body when only they are manipulating the statistics to "look" as if it has...why is the American Cancer Society telling people the wrong information and getting away with it STILL!
Detoxing is scary for me since I don't have a large colon. However, I just read Lupus-Alternative Therapies that work and am intrigued by the mercury/amalgam filling removal. I am considering that. I have already removed the majority of processed foods from my diet and am going to start on the organic eating. I am trying to reduce red meat and increase vegetables and legumes. Some of the supplements in the book sound promising too.
I had AIP 2 years ago and they thought I had cancer. I have been on steriods since Thanksgiving. I did take Imuran and did well. I had my IgG4 tested 2 months ago and it is finally normal. It was elevated for 2 years...
Consequences are re-adsorbtion of toxins from Fecal Matter(****),back into Portal Vein of Liver and Local Cellular effects,prognosis;Hemmorroids,Sub-jaundice-Encephalopathy(extremely RARE),colon cancer,anal fissures. So the best is Senokot and a high fibre diet,low in fat,drink 2ltr water per day and you will(I hope) be OK.
I'm vegan too and I have this stanky problem. I think it's the production of prostalgndins that's the culprit. The nerves in that region of the body are pretty mashed up as well. But there's nothing wrong with cutting back on processed foods. I'm stoked to try out activated charcoal!!!!
I also take probiotics for colon/intestinal health. I had colitis last year with bleeding ulcers. I just was checked and am doing great. I could go on and on. I feel much better. I have my aches and pains here and there and am on neurological meds. I don't have the awful pain I had and I'm functional now. I'm keeping as much toxins out of my body as possible. My infection rate went down so much. I haven't had infections in over a year. If you didn't have your Vit.D checked, Please do so!!!
For the last 3 years I have been in menopause and since then chronic constipation. Was just check for colon/rectal cancer, negative thank God, and biopsy of stomach to try to figure out why so constipated all the time. Will enlighten Dr. in June of other women and this problem. Thanks to all who have commented on this topic.
Please keep in mind that many other pathological conditions in the genitourinary tract can either cause or contribute to prostatits like symptoms (urethral strictures, functional voiding disorders, pelvic floor myalgia, tumors, BPH, cancer etc). My dear friends, you must all learn to listen to your bodies and try to discover what may have contributed to the onset of your prostatitis-esque symptoms. Don't let anyone tell you that this is solely psychosomatic disorder or idiopathic.
