Re: Testing on Tuesday

Talib, I think the reason scanxiety is so bad is because it’s not just fear of what could happen , but also remembrance of what has happened . Everyone dreads getting a cancer diagnosis, but no one really know what it's like until it happens to them. Now that we've been through the depths of cancer...

What a difference a year makes!

On this date last year, I received the dreaded phone call from my surgeon telling me that what he thought was stage 1, was in fact stage 2 with a Grade 3 tumor and LVI. My world came tumbling down and I had no tears left to cry. My life changed forever. Here I am 3 days before Thanksgiving and cooki...

Re: Anyone with Stage IVa just do Xelolda or 5-fu?

Hi everyone, I figured I would keep posting on this thread since it contains recent history. Husband is enjoying his week off from chemo before he starts round 3 on Wednesday. While it's no fun for him to have his OX infusion the day before Thanksgiving, at least he won't have to work Thursday. He ...

Re: Just found out I have cancer

I agree....TAKE A DEEP BREATH!! Your mind right know is trying to comprehend what happened. Once you get all your information, you will be able to make decisions. When I woke up from my first routine screening, I was told b my GI that he found a cancerous lesion. :shock: Before I left, he gave me pa...

Re: Testing on Tuesday

I am due for my 6 month scans in 3 weeks....already starting to get nervous. Like you, everyone thinks that I was "cured" after chemo and life goes back to normal. Just what I need...scans less than 10 days before Christmas!

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

My kids and grandkids made me a countDOWN calendar. Instead of the number going up each time, the number goes down. After the pump comes off, I change the number to one less. Down to 3 :D I was tired after my first session also. I think it was more the stress and sleeplessness prior. I haven't had ...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Chemo 1 done. I'm proud of myself. But the thought of 11 more is daunting. The day after disconnect I was very sleepy and this headache/fog thing. I feel like I'm being preventative and proactive but I get depressed just thinking that this is a long road and it guarantees nothing. I guess these fee...

Re: T1 rectal cancer and LVI

Hello, My husband had a hemorrhoid removed via local excision (LE) three weeks ago. We were surprised to find out that there was a tumor along side the hemorrhoid. The tumor was T1, CT and MRI indicate no evidence of cancer anywhere in the body, low-grade, well-differentiated to moderately differen...

Thought this be worth reading.... Sugars link to cancer

I was reading this article and thought it might be worth sharing. I have heard of this before, but never made the connection.

Re: New here...At a Crossroad

"get to MD Anderson and get your tumor tested for MSI status" I would imagine that that was already done. Janis is a patient at MD Anderson. Wouldn't such a big cancer center test MSI as a matter of course? Janis -- sending positive thoughts your way. I am also going to MD Anderson in NJ....
