Re: 43 Year Old Wife Diagnosed with Rectal Cancer. I'm very scared.

You always see an oncologist if you are diagnosed with cancer, no matter the stage. That's sometimes not true. In some countries (e.g. Canada) to save money they do not assign an oncologist to you if chemo is not required. I suspect that the same approach can be also used in some US areas with insu...

Re: Juicing

...juicing ... there are many claims in the internet that this really cures cancer. You can go ahead with juicing if it helps with your peace of mind. At the same time it makes sense to learn how to distinguish real medical science and common superstitions. Personally I pay attention to what is pub...

Re: Yearly ct scan moved up

I'm feeling worried because the hospital called and told me that the doctor wanted my yearly ct scans moved up to September 22nd from October 30th. From point of view of medical science there is no difference between 11 months and 12 months intervals between colonoscopies. Most likely reasons for r...

Why do you want to go to Toronto?

Re: I'm officially separated

Aqx99 , do you remember an advice CRguy gave you? He is a wise man and you should listen. You are still focused too much on your husband rather than on yourself. Peace! https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/life/facts-and-arguments/how-to-save-yourself-from-the-abyss-of-emotionaltrauma/article35904084/

Re: 1st colonoscopy this Friday, August 18th!

ocstasy,

Most likely it's not cancer.
However such bleeding and pain is a good excuse to get colonoscopy and exclude cancer.

Today pay more attention to quality of your preparation, than to this forum.

Good luck!
Please provide an update regardless of the outcome.

Re: Just arrived here......

I assume that you had "right hemicolectomy" surgery similar to quite a few people on this forum.

In this case your experience should also be similar.
You can search this forum for "right hemicolectomy" for tips on diet and recovery.

Re: Colonoscopy at 19

The most important is to have a proper preparation (squeky clean colon). In case of unsatisfactory preparation (dirty colon) some interesting stuff can be missed. Miralax + Gatorade is the best tasting preparation. You can start a bit earlier and drink a bit more to ensure better cleaning. Enjoy you...

Re: rest at home time after the surgery

Three months is a reasonable request. When you apply for EI and maybe LTD to cover yourself financially, the response might be "we can cover you for 8 weeks no longer". I am not so sure about a few months of short term disability in case of Stage 1. In my case, insurance company case work...

Re: rest at home time after the surgery

Some people with laparoscopic right hemicolectomy come to the office in about a week after surgery. Two to three weeks off seem rather normal for an office worker. I took 5 weeks off work due to after-surgery complications. By the way, it was up to me to decide when to come back. My doctor did not p...

Re: Asking questions before diagnosis?

12 years of bleeding doesn't look like cancer. However getting a colonoscopy is a good idea in this case. In my case bleeding was not caused by cancer, but colonocopy discovered it. How old is your husband? The most important is to do the best possible preparation to make sure that they do not miss ...
