So I just had a massage on my belly from an oncological massage therapist. She was recommended to me by my oncological exercise physiologist. And the point is to break up the scar tissue so that the strictures go away and the pain goes away and function returns to my bowel.
And man did she dig in there. She told me to tell her if it was too much. But I decided I was gonna let her do as much as I could stand. Which was OK. And I can already tell a big difference. So yay!
I would way rather break up scar tissue this way then do something surgical. So I will keep you posted.
In the meantime, we are out and about but maintaining our physical distance and only ordering food to go, etc.
The upside of this virus is everything has slowed down. That is probably good for all of us.
