I’m so very sorry for your loss :cry: As I understand it you had battled this disease for many years - also being NED for some time. My DH was diagnosed in 2016 - it is such a hard thing this!

Re: Edema right after starting chemo?

Mpbser,
Please see below in my signature what happens to my DH.
These steroids (as Miss Molly explained) can wreak havoc on some people. Hubby did his chemo NR 4-12 without steroids and he did not miss them!!! Steroids was like poison for him.
Good Luck with your DH’s following treatments.

Re: GOOD NEWS ON BEANSMAMA

Thank you kindly Tracy for updates !
Yes - liver test-values getting better, sitting, standing and ’eating’ sounds so so good :D
I hope they can figure out and do something about the fever and the (possible) bile leak.

Re: Wives of husbands with Stage IV Colon Freaking Cancer

Hi Melissa, How are You? I read your posts - More info is better isn't it? Your appointment Sept 22 sounds as you at least got some answers! and things to follow up. This CEA test is confusing isn't it? If it goes down we are happy, but is it really bad if it goes up a bit during treatment? I rememb...

It sounds as your DH has gotten the same advice regarding how to tackle the liver Mets and that he will be having the same routine as my DH had.
Best of Luck with the upcoming doctor visits and the Anniversery weekend !

Re: Wives of husbands with Stage IV Colon Freaking Cancer

Hi Melissa, Sorry to hear about postponed appointment :( These dates we have in the calender are a sorce for getting 'nervous' (for lack of a better word) but I think it's even worse when they are changed. I hope this new date Sept 22 will happen! and that you will get a good 2nd opinion. Husband ha...

Re: Husband broke down last night

mpbser,
It sounds as things are improving - so good to hear :)
My husband's surgeon 'prescribed' chewing gum already when hubby was in hospital recovering from surgery. I wonder if many others get that advice? Sounds as it worked great for your hubby.

Re: Husband broke down last night

mpbser,
So sorry your DH has to deal with more pain and discomfort. Sometimes it's hard to know what is causing symptoms (at times it can also be a side effect of Medications supposed to help?). Sending good wishes that both of you can catch a break soon !
