Re: From cancer and a blog to a book

Julie, I have read your blog intermittently and have always been impressed by both your way with words, but more importantly, your strength of character. How fitting is that that strength is now formally recognized and a tangible legacy results, one that can be read, and reread, and reread again. We...

Re: vacation, travel, whatever...just do it!

Wonderful to hear. My wife, our 3yo daughter and I are heading to Hawaii in two weeks (yesterday). It has been a long time coming and marks 2yrs since my diagnosis (again, yesterday). I was worried about travel after my reversal but fortunately I’ve been very fortunate in that respect. Can’t wait to...

Re: Doctors disagree on rectal cancer treatment

For my two cents, I had a combo of both. My onc’s were of the view that they wanted to treat it as if it had already spread and we just couldn’t see it yet on scans etc. I had FOLFOX then a block of chemoradiation then FOLFOX, then chemoradiation and then FOLDOX again. Then had the 6week wait before...

Re: Genetic Testing

I was referred shortly after my diagnosis. Went and saw this fellow and was told didn't have Lynch, and none of the other genes that go 'awry' showed anything either. I agreed to provide them with additional runout material for further testing after surgery but in light of my complete response, that...

Re: Strange question - possibly TMI

So I think I have worked it out. Being paranoid as I am about all things medical, I decided to go and have a 'look'. Using a mirror I saw what looked like a 'bruise' where the lump used to be. It looks exactly like what a blood blister looks like so I suspect it was some sort of blood blister/intern...

Strange question - possibly TMI

So tonight I was having a shower and washing the date. I had noticed when wiping that the skin seemed a little 'loose' on the right side of the opening. Anyways, as I was lathering away, I felt a pea shaped (a tad smaller in size though) in that very area. I pinched it between my thumb and finger to...

Re: Strange pain

Thanks JJH and Peanut. Hopefully it's related to previous treatment or a hernia.

Good to see you're doing well, Swirdfish! Keep up the good work
