For the past couple of weeks I have temporarily stopped the intermittent fasting program I had been doing for several months. We haven’t been able to identify what has been causing my persistent diarrhea. It could be the fasting, or one or a combination of the supplements, or something else.
My oncologist ordered a bunch of tests and found there was no infection and my electrolytes were normal. We still don’t know what caused it, but the diarrhea has finally stopped the last few days.
I have been feeling anxious, depleted, and tired. I will probably start in with the supplements again, once I feel stabilized, but I won’t do the fasting every week. Maybe once a month. My scan is scheduled the first week in June and then I will know if this has made a difference in the progression (or elimination) of cancer.
