My grandfather died of colon cancer and I am concerned about getting this disease. Does constipation cause colon cancer? I have been constipated most of my life (even though I eat a lot of fruits, veggies and whole grains) and this worrys me. Also, I had surgery for stage 1 ovarian cancer last year and I must have a yearly CT scan on my abdomen. Will this...

I had ovarian cancer staging surgery on May 17th (cancer was discovered in my ovaries when I had a hysterectomy on March 30th). I have an incision from just above my belly button down to the top of my pubic area. The doctor removed my omentum (fat layer), appendix and several lymph nodes. Luckily, no additional cancer was found and I did not require chemot...

Has anyone had the Endovenous ablation procedure for varicose veins? This is done in the doctor's office and local anethesia is injected into your leg. Are the shots tolerable? Are you glad you had the procedure?

Kasie, Hope you are doing better now. I just flew back from California yesterday and physically, I am feeling fine, but I am having my highs and lows emotionally (medically induced menopause). Take care and get better soon. Love, Gina

Thanks Sweetpea. I did have an ultrasound and no blood clot was found. I have an appointment with a vascular surgeon tomorrow to discuss injecting or removing the vein. Gina

I have a large varicose vein on the back of my left thigh. Two weeks ago, I had major surgery and this vein is very tender to the touch and hurts somewhat when I walk. Is this from the lack of exercise because of my surgery or could a blood clot be forming? Note: I see no redness, swelling etc that would be a sign of a blood clot. Thanks, Gina

I just had my ovarian cancer staging surgery on May 17th and no cancer was found (other than the ovaries on a previous surgery). I was diagnosed with stage 1 papillary serous borderline cancer and no chem is needed as no cancer was found in the omentum, appendix or several lymph nodes. Does anyone have any tips on flying after surgery? We are attending our...
