Bowel cancer, stoma care and the use of plant sterols
I was diagnosed with Metastatic bowel cancer in August., 2017 and I am currently on my 19th session of chemotherapy. Doing OK on the chemo with not too many side effects. I also have a stoma as my bowel was blocked. This is working fine as well. I Al just getting on with my life. Love my holidays, keen on DIY, enjoy short walk and I am a volunteer with a local Friends group managing our village green.
My GP asks me, each year if I will go on Statins as my cholesterol is a bit high but my Oncology Consultant syas no. I have been advised to try plant sterols, which seem to work according to reports. Does anyone have any any know of any of their use, particularly with a stoma. Do they cause wind or loose output from the stoma which appears to be have happened in my case, although I have been fighting a winter cold bug and taking antibiotics.
