Re: Rectal bleeding 7 months after a clear colonoscopy

Eating a lot of spicy food can cause inflammation and bleeding when pooping just as you described. If you do not eat spicy food and your exhibiting this issue then you should see a doctor.

Re: Update from Rikimaroo

It so crazy every time you speak to your doctor you have several questions then when he hangs up and you think about it more you think of more questions. Now thinking about this the MRI I did in March 2018 was what they used to compare to the MRI I did in September 2018 which showed the soft tissue ...

Glad to see your moving on Mike. Very happy for you my friend. I have done 9 rounds of Chemo so far and I told my Onc I need a break, extra week off, but I don't want to do anymore. It's so tough and I am having a hard time handling it. Especially the nueropathy in my hands and feet. My last treatme...

Re: Liver lung mets rectal cancer UK

I just wanted to say I am sorry to hear this. But I do have some questions. Did he change his diet in anyway? Did he exercise and keep active? I quit red meat on first diagnosis back in 12/2016. I also try to keep active but not so much since I am going through chemo right now so its tough. It's har...

Re: My recent surgery & update on MSK HAI pump (long)

Awesome news. The surgery is always tough because my liver resection was a cross cut on my abdomen and it hurt for a few days. It got better around the sixth day when I got discharged, and I drained for like six weeks afterwards from the cut. Glad you got your surgery done. Stay strong you got this!...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I did the Xray Enema 3 weeks after my liver and LAR resections. It was not bad, but never fun. The real annoyance was after all was done I was on the toilet for like 15 minutes spraying out all the liquid. When I got home same thing, the car ride I could hold, it was 1 hour drive home. I was on the ...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Did they say that the port is no longer needed? I thought usually you keep it for 2 years after doing everything just in case. But I do hope nothing and your done with all this crap. The neuropathy for me kicked in hard 2-3 months after doing the first 6 rounds of chemo. I am so happy you made it th...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Bag change has been quite quick for me. About 5-7 minutes right out of the shower. I usually shower with the bag on then change it afterwards. 9th round of Folfox this Wednesday. Neuropathy has been a bit rough, numbess in hands and feet is worse at night, more feet then hands. Typing on keyboard yo...

Re: A cautionary tale

I am very frustrated at seeing the holistic doctors conning people into thinking that they can cure your cancer. It leads so many astray and it makes decision making so difficult when it comes to us folks who are battling cancer. They have no proven history of success, like the medical profession. I...
