Hello. I’m actually an oncology patient, 17 years old, osteosarcoma.

Hello. I’m actually an oncology patient, 17 years old, osteosarcoma. Constipation is has been a big problem with me, my chemo causes it and I haven’t been very good with keeping it under control. I’ve even developed hemorrhoids because of it. As you can imagine having a bowl movement has become extremely painful. I’ve dealt with it many times and can’t remeber that last time going to the bathroom wasn’t extremely painful. Looking for relief I used a glycerin suppository even though I know I should not have. It was stupid but I was just too afraid of the pain. When using it however I felt a slight burning and went to the bathroom right away. I had a painful bowel movement but the pain persisted even after I had finished. I got a fever the next day and am now in the hospital, but too embarrassed to confess. It’s already been found that there’s a bacteria in my blood and it’s ESBN Ecoli and is being treated. Three days later however the pain in my anus persists and is worrying me. Worst of all is that the pain has kept me from having a bowl movement only worsening the situation. It is painful to pat with toilet paper, sit, and pass gass. I tried to go to the bathroom but without even pushing, just as it naturally started to come out the pain was so bad that I couldn’t finish. I’m worried something else may be wrong and thought maybe I’d try on here. Thank you

Hello, I have a strange question. My mother told me 3 weeks ago that she had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma. I had gone on a vacation she didn t want me to go on, and part of me feels like this is a lie she has told to keep me from going out as much. (I m 26 years old, and I have just recently moved back in with her due to marital issues.) My question is would see go this long without having any follow up visits for this serious of a diagnosis? She also doesn t see her PCP for another month.

My 19 year old son was diagnose with Osteogenic type II b osteosarcoma on the knee (about 5cm). He had limb sparing surgery and systematic Chemotherapy (Adryomicin, cisplatin and methotrexade). He has had his first 3 month check up and every test is clear, his hair is growing back and he is feeling better and better. The surgery revealed that the chemo had killed 95% of the cancer...When I read the survival rates, they are quite low...Is this accurate, is this one of worst cancers, can we be optimistic, is there any vitamin/food that can help...He is doing so well that I cannot imagine this thing coming back....Thank you
