You feel like me, like I just said in my last post here, the days I take senekot, I have EXTREME pain. Last night was so bad I was crying by the time my husband got home. I do my grocery shopping, I try to keep the heavy things that do not have to come in right away til my husband comes home.

This is my social life too. I used to bowl 4 nights a week til I had my surgey in april. I tale that back when my mother died almost four years ago, I quit all the leagues I was on to help with my handicapped sister, my dad is 70, trying to take care of her, now I cannot even help with her amymore. I do try to when I can, but now my sister has stopped, my gyn told me in front of dad, when he saw my retarded sister last month how things like shopping, housework, and bathing Karen is hard for me to do, an he knows I conteplating surgery.

I am so g lad to hear from you. You sound like me.

hopefully things will be better today, I skipped the senekot last night. Time will tell.

Karla, have a good day. I may be back later!
