Re: Blood clots and low oxygen and hospice OH MY

Dear Mohrfamily, I second what Carboxo said in above message - I get it. Cruising through that whole caregiver role for a couple of years just puts you on autopilot at the end. You just have to get everything done, including those things you mention with funeral home. I get it. It of course depends ...

Re: Goodbye

I am very sorry to read about your mum's passing. I have read some time ago on this forum that mum's passing is the first sorrow one has to deal with alone. Because the mum is no longer here to comfort and support and for an unconditional love. I do not have much words of comfort. Just wanted to say...

Re: MSI or MSS

Hi Stu, My mother was MSS and we had to privately pay for this test on her tumour, which they preserve for sometime in a specialised lab. When she was tested, Keytruda was not yet approved and even if it has been approved now by FDA , I doubt it will be covered by social security system, so people h...

My mom has passed away on Wednesday. Thank you all for this wonderful support forum

Dear all, My mom has passed away on November 29th. It was a very rapid decline. Since her diagnosis in August 2016 I have read the threads on this forum (even dated several years back) almost daily. The wealth of information and support here people give to each other has been life saving for me and ...

Re: ramucirumab + folfiri

Hi Meatie, Our onc has mentioned ramucirumab (Cyramza). I am planned to discuss more with him in the next days.
