Re: How many diagnosed have family with history?

No one in my family with colorectal cancer.

It’s odd because I have dna repair mismatch and it’s never shown up in my parents, grandparents, great grandparents, or siblings.

Or in any of my grandparents siblings. Or parents siblings.

Guess I am “special.” :lol:

Re: New here...At a Crossroad

Janis, I am so sorry I did not read you post carefully enough to see that you already are a patient at MD Anderson.

I hope that you can find a clinical trial that could help you.

No matter what your decision, I will be thinking of you and praying for you and your family.

Re: Having open colorectal surgery 11/09/2017

Good luck today, AlexM!

Had open surgery, in the hospital many days.

I didn’t eat much of anything while in the hospital, had zero appetite. The last 2 days I drank broth and felt a bit better.

My large incision was uncomfortable and moving sucked, but ya gotta walk.

Re: New here...At a Crossroad

40 rounds of chemo, you are a warrior! I have so much respect for you and your fighting spirit. I imagine your body and mind are both drained and weakened, and everything seems miserable when you try to think of your options going forward. I haven’t had anywhere near 40 rounds of chemo, and at times...

Re: New here...At a Crossroad

Hi Janis. Sorry to hear about your situation. It may sound cliche but there is always hope. Other people with similar situations have reached NED status again. It is true that you may have to face the possiblity of having treatments indefinitely but even this is not a certainty. Just worry about th...

Re: First Chemo (Oxaliplatin/Leukovorin 2hr/5FU Infuser)

First of all, good luck!! I drove myself there and back to each chemo. I was by myself for the last 6 or so treatments. My only issue was the steroids they gave with the chemo would make my blood sugar wonky. If I didn't eat after chemo I felt worse. But I didn't feel hungry...just nauseous and head...
