Re: Wives of husbands with Stage IV Colon Freaking Cancer

Hallo, All caregivers, I’m sorry for not having been around much lately. It’s due to us trying to live a ”NED for now”/normal... life without tests & appointments. Hubby is actually the one looking healiest in our house at the moment... Some of you might remember that I had an accident with many...

Re: Anyone with Stage IVa just do Xelolda or 5-fu?

Well, I do understand the frustration... Actually it was not until hubby had that scary very high Glucos (due to steroids), when he had to take insulin injections, that he realized the impact of different food. Also the impact of exercise! He had to take blood tests at home many times during the day...

Re: Anyone with Stage IVa just do Xelolda or 5-fu?

Hi mpbser,
Just checked in to see how you are doing.
Glad to hear it sounds as it is going OK :)
About the elevated glucos - do keep an eye on it! It was at approximately this time that hubby reacted bad to the steroids.
All the best to you going forward.
Kind regards

Re: Higher Vitamin D levels and colorectal cancer survival

I wonder what is the hen and the egg here..? Hubby always had higher vitamin D3 test result than me before he was diagnosed with CRC. As soon as he got diagnosed I took a test on us both and suddenly he had quite a bit lower than me. (He had 29ng/ml and I had 45). Now after surgery and treatment he ...

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.
