My mum is 86 and has dementia and as of March she has rectal cancer as well. She is currently undergoing palliative chemo and radiation. She has been using pull-up pants for a while due to o incontenance but with the cancer and radiation she now has bowel incontenance With diarrhoea and the pull ups just aren’t cutting it. She is still slightly mobile so don’t really know what to use. Any suggestions? thanks

Hi i am ten years Cancer free from Breast Cancer. Firstly let me say I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis but it isn’t the end of the world. Also everyone’s journey is different. You can have exactly the same cancer as someone else but your journey is yours. Having breast cancer doesn’t automatically mean you will have chemo this will need to be discussed with surgeon. For example I had a lumpectomy and radiation, one of my friends had a mastectomy and no further treatment and another had mastectomy and chemo. It depends on what type and grade of cancer you have and what your surgeon and oncologist think is your best option hope this helps you
