Very interesting post. I have had two bouts of cancer a little over 12 months apart. I had my first in my rectum and then a secondary in my liver a bit over 12 months later. I had a large portion of my bowel removed and then 45% of my liver was removed and I have not been normal since. I also had three rounds of chemotherapy and six weeks of radio therapy. As a result of the cancer I am now not able to tolerate a lot of food and oil is something that causes me a great deal of grief. Generally if I eat food that contains any oil I need to be very close to the bathroom for quite a time as it has this effect on my system. I am now trying to work out what I can do to soak up the excess oil in my system to enable me to eat food that I really enjoy.
