Does anyone know if there is any reason why someone should not see a chiropodist 2 weeks after having had surgery for bowel cancer? Pescatarian supporter.

@pescatarian Hi I really don't know but feet are strange things. My niece who is a physio once told me that you never do a foot massage on a woman in the later stages of pregnancy as it can bring on labour. So all I can think is that nerves in the feet have connections to the muscles in the abdomen.

I am assuming that a chiropodist or one of the medical team gave you the info but didn't explain why.

Let me know if you find out why

All the best
