Re: Anyone pass out after abdominal cramping??? ER time

Oh my world :shock: :cry: I am so sorry to hear this news! Will they now (have to) remove the HAI pump that you say has ”died”? If so why wasn’t it removed during the procedures? Please forgive me if that is a stupid question - it’s just that I hear that you are worried about ’something floting arou...

Re: Anyone pass out after abdominal cramping??? ER time

He had a little sleep. He still is getting lightheaded whenever he stands up from a lying position. Seems odd that this is still happening. No answers from Dr. Kemeny's team. "Stay hydrated and take it easy" is all they said. Dear S, what a scary experience! So you did not get any answers...

Re: Should we move the scan up?

I had a rising CEA through Adjuvant Chemo and it went above normal so the oncologist ordered a scan which showed nothing (though it's a relief). It turned out to be exercise related as I increased my exercise regularly while I was undergoing chemo. I think that there are a few known things that are...

Re: First CT results are in..

Great news AmyG :) Wishing you a good response to chemo.
Btw, (You have no info in your signature) do you now if you have any mutations and if you are MSS or MSI? I presume that they tested your resected colon tumor..
Kind regards/LPL

Re: My CRC with liver mets journey

Well I must be doing well because they want to start the pump chemo TODAY. We were just expecting saline. Glad I had sushi yesterday! Sounds like they only found one affected lymph node, near the colon, which was removed during surgery. Pathology on all the other nodes was negative. I was a bit sur...

Re: My CRC with liver mets journey

I had a CT scan yesterday and Sandy called me today to say there was a blood clot on my spleen vein. Back to MSK for syringes full of blood thinner - I gave myself a shot in the bathroom and then we took a bus tour of NY! I’m now 9 days out. My swelling has been reduced significantly, and I’m walki...
