Re: Tom marsilje

Sadness beyond words to read of Tom's passing. So many have benefited from his knowledge, his example of perseverance, and the generosity with which he shared all he discovered. He was and shall always be a light in the darkness. RIP Tom

Re: Post op food

Hi Sheree ~ I had open surgery, a nice 6" incision straight down the middle. I was on a "nothing by mouth until gas" plan. Basically I had ice chips and nothing else for 5 days, but I wasn't really hungry anyway. Then soft food for a day, a regular bland low-fiber meal the day I left ...

Re: BrownBagger ....... I don't know what to say

SO very sorry to see this. He always seemed undefeatable... and I think because of the impact he's had here, he is. Loved his positivity, and his gardening reports. He was and will always be an inspiration. RIP and thank you BrownBagger!

Re: Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs/Spas

Do you live in California? Almost everything in CA has "may cause cancer" warnings due to over-compliance with CA Prop 65:

Re: Cea question

I was Stage 1 (T2N0M0) but have a nodule on my lung that's being watched, so I get bloodwork every 3 months, CT 6 months. Pulmonary onc said not to worry about the nodule but we're still keeping an eye on it. Also watching a nodule on my thyroid. MKC70 - I'm curious, if every test shows nothing, how...

Re: Recommended Stage 1 follow up?

My schedule is: 3 month bloodwork, 6 month CT, 1 yr colonoscopy. After a year if all is well, reassess the plan. I may be having more regular CT because I had (have) a nodule in my lung that's being monitored. (So far, the pulmonary specialist thinks it's probably scarring from old valley fever infe...

Re: polyp-awaiting second opinion-colectomy vs endoscopic submucosal dissection

Hi nsog, since you have concerns and confusion as to the diagnosis and how to proceed, I would get another opinion. A bit of my story: I had a routine screening colonoscopy, during which the Dr found what he called "an area of inflammation" from which he took 3 biopsies that came back as &...

Re: Need a New Doctor

How unfortunate your surgeon has left. I would ask their office for a referral to an oncologist. I was Stage 1 also (T2N0M0) and was automatically referred to an onc. My surgeon is totally uninvolved with my after-care at this point. I have some unexplained lung nodules that they want to keep an eye...
