Re: Chemotherapy Journey

Hi Shana,

Mine has been consistent pain and has not relieved itself. So I figured I say something. Avastin can cause blood clots. I am very nervous and hope these blood thinners gives my body time to heal me of the clot.

It’s a very scary situation because of what you read about clots.

Re: Chemotherapy Journey

You know I didn't mention this but I also have a neck pain on the right side of my neck bottom of my jaw. It's a weird pain so today I go in for my infusion, and mention it to them. This has been going on for a week, my last treat was on the 3rd, and it showed up maybe the next week around the 9th? ...

Re: Stage 1 with no surgery...any thoughts?

Relax, breath. Even though this is something to be concerned, highlighted lymph nodes can mean many things. Inflammation is one of them. Did you do a CEA test? If its good indicator for you then and its low, you are fine. I on the other hand should of done surgery, look at my history. I am way worse...

Re: Chemotherapy Journey

Anyone else start pooping pellets vs normal poop during chemo? Not sure how long it will last into my days off. Is that normal? Should I take anything?

Re: Chemotherapy Journey

Reason why my WBC went up was because of the steroid they give during the infusion. So dr wanted me to still do neulasta. I have it on now and will be taking it off tonight. The general nausea, stomach cramps, sensitivity to cold really dampens the journey. I dread getting the pump again on the 16th...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Do you eat a lot of spicy foods? This can cause bleeding as well. Based on the information you have provided I don't think its cancer, but always good to get checked. My symptoms were blood marks ON my stool. Not a big pile of blood. That could be diverticulitis that you may be experiencing. Keep us...

Re: Neo-Adjuvant Chemo Stage 1 Rectal Cancer?

My doctor told me if there is no disease in the specimen they remove with LAR, then there should be no need for additional chemo. this is called pCR (pathological complete response). Your situation seems to fit this scenario. Sometimes folks do Mop-up chemo just to be safe, but I am not sure, its on...
