When you see someone who has cancer in the movies or whatever, you always hear about chemo and throwing up or hair falling out but there is all sorts of treatments and medications that are involved in managing pain and fighting the disease that can have all kinds of effects on your body.
One of the first and longest standing issues I have had since this journey began is with constipation.
I have never talked about, thought about or done more things that centred around poop in my whole entire life. We have all become wannabe poop charmers trying to get it to just get the hell out of me.
Erin, one of my fabulous nurses even made me steamed prunes at home and brought them in for me.
In an effort to figure out what it is that is going on with my digestive system, the doctors put me on something called PegLyte to clear out my system so that they can do some tests.
But, you have to make it fun and still smile or it will drive you crazy. So you dance with a poo emoji and just get through it.
