Re: Goodbye

I’m so very sorry to hear. Mum’s are very special, and it sounds like yours was special and then some.

I hope you can look back on the happy memories.

Sending hugs,

Geoff

Re: For Stage III's: NED for how long now?

3 years NED today! This time 3 years ago I was on my way to the ward after my ULAR. In a few days I will have been told that I had a complete pathological response.

Posting to let new peeps know that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Re: "Dr" Google can be good

So true! Reading articles from medical journals provided me with info to ask questions of each of my specialists along the way and generally, more often than not, they appreciated that I had taken the time to read up on treatment plans etc.

Re: Scanxiety is real!

Scanxiety is the WORST!!!

I normally have my scans the Thursday or Friday before an appointment so I only have to worry about it over the weekend but this time I’m having them Thursday and don’t see doc for another 10 days due to work commitments! :shock:

Sending you some positive vibes!

Some good, non-cancer related news

Gday butt-buddies, hope you’re all well. It’s been a while since I’ve been on here (is that a bad thing?) but just wanted to share some good, non-cancer related news. I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned what I do, but I am a prosecutor for the state of New South Wales (Sydney is the state capital). ...

2yrs NED

2 years ago I woke up to the news that my ass-Cancer was successfully removed and I met my temporary stoma, Steve. Unfortunately, later that day I would also OD on morphine, requiring Narcan/Naloxone later that day but that’s another story. A few days later I would get my pathology results that I ha...

Re: Scared about bowel issues

Welcome to the forum but sorry you had to find us. You certainly did the right thing by making an appointment to see your doc. I would definitely recommend demanding another colonoscopy. There are a bunch of different things that could be causing your symptoms and the best way to rule all the common...

Re: Bowel prep - Does it ever get easier?!?!

Hi CAGirl, Sorry you had such a rough prep, but stoked that you got the all clear though. I’ve only used the one prep, the only thing that’s different is the flavour so I couldn’t comment on others sorry. This prep I made a conscious effort to start on the clear fluids earlier than required and I th...

Haha I’m with Maggie - what an innappropriate name of GoLytely! They may as well call it ass-waterfall :shock: I’m at the back end <boom tish> of the second Litre of prep and I’m pleased to say that this prep has far and away been the easiest. Scope is the afternoon butt rest assured Maggie, I’ll le...

Re: Getting A Colonoscopy With (potential) Sleep Apnea

O Stoma Mia is correct. I just looked at my paperwork and it’s not on there either. Mine is tomorrow and although I HATE the prep (see my other post LOL), I love the sedation. Midazolam and a hint of Propofol is a great way to start/end a day, particularly with a healthy dose of IV fluids to make yo...
