Re: Scanxiety: Anyone else having testing now?

I just finished all the tests for the one year mark, colonoscopy/blood/ct scan and all were clear! I didn’t have scanxiety for this first year, but that was probably due to the fact that I was getting labs every 3 months and scans every 6. Now my onc said I’ll just do labs and scans every six months...

Re: Fainted during prep

This has happened to me both times I’ve done the prep. They both happened at the same time too. I had taken the second does of Miralax around midnight, then went to sleep. I woke up a couple of hours later to go to the bathroom and then the fun started. On my first colonoscopy prep I got really ligh...

Re: Burning pain after reversal

I’m not sure if you have the same thing I did but the “stretching out the stomach” comment stood out to me. I had a pain in my incision after my resection and it always felt let it needed to be stretched out to make it feel better, kinda like a really bad cramp at the incision. I explained that to m...

Are followup colonoscopies counted as preventative?

Hey guys, I have my first post chemo colonoscopy this week and I was curious if it counts as preventative care. I had to pay for a portion of the colonoscopy that diagnosed my cancer and now I’m wondering if I should have had to pay anything at all for that one. Preventative care is supposed to be f...

Re: Oxaliplatin and Combatting Neuropothy

I’m almost 5 months out from my last round of chemo. The neuropathy was at its worst around 2-3 months after my last round. At that point my hands felt so numb that I couldn’t button my shirt, tie my shoes, write or type. My feet were so numb that driving became difficult because I couldn’t tell how...

Re: Enlarged lymph node seen after surgery on CT scan. Not sure what this means. Anyone have any experience with this?

Hmmm, good question. I originally was going to say it could have been enlarged due to the infection you had but then you mentioned metastatic so I don’t have any idea. After my surgery, I had 2 enlarged lymph nodes and my onc said they were just doing what they do as a part of my immune system. We l...

Re: Chemotherapy Journey

No they are shocks (not like electric shocks lol or maybe irritation spikes) Maybe like Gas shocks, hard to explain, the butt hole one is just sensitivity and irritation. Correct it is not normal, that is what I heard from another doctor. I think I must of got some damage from the Radiation Therapy...

Re: Chemotherapy Journey

I’m glad you told your doctor. Blood clots are scary. Just goes to show how important it is to tell your doc all the side effects.

I never had a scab or blister in my nose but I did get bloody noses after almost every treatment.

3 treatments down, you are already half way done! Keep up the fight

Re: How long after colon resection did you feel back to normal?

I’m the exact opposite as most of you. I had diarrhea almost everyday for years before I was diagnosed. I’d go to the doctor just to be told I had IBS. Finally they found that I was anemic and that’s basically how my cancer was discovered. After my surgery, everything went back to normal. I can actu...
