Re: Please help- signet ring cell & two primary cancers! Rare & scared

I don't feel i can put anymore onto my husband than i already have! He is the one with the death sentence and yet i am the one who is falling apart. I don't know how to control it, it just seems to be consuming me and sapping me of any small amount of energy i have left. It's obvious that you are h...

Re: What supplements do you take????

I take supplements, but it feels compulsive so I am not sure it's best practice.

Re: Help!! Newly diagnosed stage 3a signet ring cell carcinoma

Hello JoG, Sorry about your diagnosis. I really don't know of any signet ring cell exclusive support groups (honestly I haven't looked for any either). However, you are certainly not alone as you can see from my signature, and there are others on this site. It's been over a year since my diagnosis. ...

Congratulations Jay. 3.5 years is a big deal. Stay NED, and I really hope you would be allowed to get a few more scans, it's worth the peace of mind.

Re: Please help- signet ring cell & two primary cancers! Rare & scared

It is terrible that every cancer seems to have it's own unique twist, some more than others. HIPEC is not definitive as to whether it has an overall benefit, but it is a recommended treatment. However, chemo has good results for killing cancer cells. It is unfortunate you can't do both at the same t...

Re: Any long term signet survivors out there?

I am sorry to hear about your husband. But any SRC stories I have read don't have any "special" treatments for it. I am a little over a year since my diagnosis. What you need to know is that it is aggressive - so the tumor sizes grow faster and the mucus it produces helps it spread faster....

Re: Please help- signet ring cell & two primary cancers! Rare & scared

Hello, Your husband sounds like a fighter. SRCs are rare, but there are a few of us that have that feature on this forum, it is also possible to survive it, despite its aggressiveness. I am surprised avastatin isn't included in your husband's chemo regimen; i understand it is part of the standard tr...
