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.

Just went through an impacted bowel in March, 2022. I have IBS-D normally. I ate a bunch of red licorice over the course of a few days. I didn't know how dangerous impacted colons could be. I'll never eat red licorice again!
