      Hello Nancy,

      I swear except for the fall Buddy and I are same patient. A few weeks ago, I took morphine for five days and it really backed me up. I took stool softners and waiting a couple of days. I finally went to the ER and got a CT scan. I have a 6 CM tumor in the intestines. The doctors gave me a all clear went home and did a Fleets enema. I was fine after that. I finished Ipi on Monday.

      Did they do a CT scan? I am sure they did.

      Do the enema and see about radiation in the area.
