Re: BeansMama - I'm still kicking (butt that is)

I'm so glad you posted. I am upset for you about insurance. I'm glad others have given you better information.

Take care of your Bean. It's no wonder that she is stressed out. I'm glad she is going to a counselor. Our children bear so much stress.

Have a great vacation.

Re: Likely reactive- Shouldn't I be concerned?

Thank you! I am so glad to see what you two wrote- and it fits the scenario. I had an amoeba and salmonella a few weeks prior. I was probably trying to fight off an infection! Thank you for your replies!

Likely reactive- Shouldn't I be concerned?

This is what the CT scan. I'm told to come back in one year for another exam, but doesn't this mean something? I am reacting to the "Likely reactive comments". Abdominal Lymph Nodes and Retroperitoneum: No enlarged abdominal or pelvic lymph nodes. A few scattered prominent mesenteric lymph...

A sore bottom- diaper rash med recommendation?

My bottom is sore almost like before surgery last year. I recently had a colonoscopy and a CT scan- so no obvious problem. (CEA is not in the normal range but it isn't too high either.) Is there any ointment that you recommend? I'm using butt paste now. I am still going to the restroom 6-8 times a d...

barely above normal WBC count

I forgot to ask this question but my WBC count is just above normal. My CEA has risen to 5.8 but the cat scan and the colonoscopy showed no reason for immediate concern. I will have another scope next year.

Does a low WBC count and a slightly higher than normal CEA mean anything?

Re: Age 30 (M) Recently Diagnosed, Family History

Sealy,

Your are so young, Are you seeing a board certified colorectal surgeon? I don't have any significant advise for you, but I'm sure others will.

POPCORN after surgery

Can you eat it? Does it mess with you?

I am slowly coming to a conclusion that I don't want-but I think should leave popcorn alone. However, I'd love to be wrong.
Popcorn is my comfort food.

Can you eat popcorn or does it cause you potty problems?

1 year follow up after LAR

I had my colonoscopy and cat scan done over the last two weeks. Colonoscopy detected a benign area that was suspicious but determined benign. Cat scan- same results as last year. CEA results are the questionable part. The number has changed/risen 4.8 in June 2016, 2.6 in December 2016, and now 5.6 i...

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

I had the surgery. I was also stage 1 and the choice was mine. Am I glad for the surgery? It's a pain at times- even a year out. But I sleep better knowing the area is completely clear of cancer. In my personal situation, the anxiety would have been too high to not have surgery as I live overseas wi...

Fertility drugs and colon cancer

I read an article on a facebook group where a doctor is trying to link colon cancer with egg donation (and I'm taking it one step further to say fertility drugs in general). She thinks the fertility drugs caused her daughter to get colon cancer at a young age. Is there any science behind this? How m...
