Re: Bowel issues worried about colon cancer?

Welcome to the Forum. For your meeting with the doctor this week, what I would suggest is that you ask the doctor for a referral to a Gastroenterologist for purposes of scheduling a colonoscopy. A colonoscopy is what is needed in order to resolve issues like this. Colonoscopy questions answered http...

Re: Oxaliplatin Dosage - Call Off

Hi Gloria -
It looks like you made a good choice. Dr. E has years of experience, many positive ratings on his profile, and he also specializes in second opinions in the colorectal area, so that's an extra plus. I hope you will be able to talk with him soon.
