I have had it twice, both times had to be in hospital for hours filled with laxitives, and finally had to have an impaction done which was the worst thing in the world I have gone through and I have gone through a lot.

I was diagnosed and treated for colon cancer 18 years ago. A few years ago I was lets just say backed up all the way. I looked nine months pregnant. Felt it too. Went to my gasterologist and found I had severe IBS cAnd d. Changed my diet take probiotics. When I cheat I know it. Its hard to be good to your body.

It’s now 6 months since my impacted bowel and sepsis. I’ve learned a lot. Sepsis leaves you with a compromised immune system, similar to a cancer patient. I was sick all winter, one cold after another, two bouts of bronchitis, and am now recovering from a stomach virus, totaling seven illnesses. I’m hoping to see improvement in another six months. They are still monitoring my lungs. Next scan is June. I had to cancel my brain MRI this week. I was too sick. It’s very hard to make plans!
