Hello I am new 🐼to the community
Recently had APR and colostomy Feb 2019 just completed first of 12 FOLFOX cycles
I was wondering if anyone has advice on the healing of the perineum all appears good it’s around the scar area feeling tight and occasionally some specks of blood if I have been sat or overstretch. Does anyone have any advice on creams etc that might help ?
Thanks in anticipation ginger 7🐼

Hi @ginger7 I had an APR last October and also felt and still feel tightness of wound. I'm careful on bending down and sitting positions, but it does get better with time. I used baby thovaline but now use simple nivea cream. Hope this helps. Linda :x:
