Re: recovery from colonoscopy?

I can only speak for myself, but I have now had 3 colonoscopies and I’m pretty much back to normal the same day of the procedure, but my prep was much more simple than yours, just a few ducolax tablets and some miralax mixed with Gatorade. I’d be concerned if I was still experiencing issues a week l...

Re: CEA

I was told to get a colonoscopy every year for 5 years. His oncologist or gastroenterologist should be able to tell him the frequency he needs to get them at.

Re: Stage IV, what happens after surgery?

my surgeon initially thought I wouldn’t need chemo either, but that I’d need to talk to a medical onc just to make sure. The onc I was assigned to is the lead for this immunotherapy clinical trial. It seems like the trial is the route they are wanting me to go. I’m not opposed to the trial at all, ...

Re: Stage IV, what happens after surgery?

I still have neuropathy 2 years later and obviously the chemo didn’t work the first go around. I’m guessing maybe those things could have played a factor? My local onc wants a follow up so I will discuss it with him and then again with MDA when I head back there.

Re: Stage IV, what happens after surgery?

DH had chemo before and after his liver resection. 6 months of adjuvent after the liver resection. He then had more chemo when he had a recurrence. He had radiation done, and then more chemo. And now he had a lung met removed. Chemo before and after that surgery too. Honestly, if I were you I would...

Stage IV, what happens after surgery?

I was previously stage 3 and after surgery did 11 rounds of folfox. I was NED for 2 yrs and then a met showed up on my liver. I had surgery to remove the met last week. My oncologist said I would not have to do chemo. Is that normal? I was offered a clinical trial, but that depends on if I have CTDN...

Re: Drinking very hot tea almost doubles risk of cancer, new study says

Isn’t it ironic that the chemo used to treat colon cancer basically forces you to drink warm/hot drinks? Lol

Re: Made it almost 2 years, now it’s back. Any MD Anderson advice?

Thanks benben. I’m still kinda in shock about it all. I’ve never felt better in my adult life than I do now, so how can i be in this situation? I’m still working on getting into md Anderson. My insurance requires referrals from my PCP for everything so that’s been fun to deal with. Hopefully they wi...

Made it almost 2 years, now it’s back. Any MD Anderson advice?

I haven’t been here in a while because honestly I have been feeling great and hardly even thought about cancer anymore. I was first diagnosed in March 2017 as stage 3b. Surgery and chemo all went fine and I was cancer free ever since. I went to my PCP for a regular physical last year and he noticed ...

Re: PET Scan results?

That’s the hope, and I think that’s why my onc wanted to wait a bit before rushing to surgery when for all he knows it could be benign.

Re: PET Scan results?

Still in limbo basically. Mri showed a 4-5mm mass on the liver, but it only showed up on one of the slides. Onc said it’s too small to biopsy at this point so he wanted to wait for 6 weeks and do another mri to see if there have been any changes. That happens at the end of October so still have a fe...
