Re: Internal Iliac Node involvement??

Hi Punky, I am also sorry to hear what is going on. I am one of those Stage IV due to distant nodes that warriorspouse mentioned. In my case with the tumor in my cecum, my spread to para aortic nodes deemed me stage IV. I never had a PET scan before my initial surgery so it’s hard to know if it was...

LN Biopsy tomorrow morning

Hey everyone,
So my husband is having the swollen lymph nodes biopsied tomorrow morning. Kind of stressed out about waiting for the results. How long do you think we'll have to wait?

Re: 2 swollen nodes in abdomen...

clj: Thank you so much for your reply. My husband's surgeon and oncologist work very closely together and they both agree that we need to biopsy. It sounds like he will have the same procedure that you had . . . it's scheduled for this Wednesday morning. I'm just hoping we get the results ASAP. Do y...

Re: 2 swollen nodes in abdomen...

One more thing...the oncologist wants to hold off on the PET scan for now, as infection/inflammation can light up....so best to wait until the surgeon checks him out (???)

Re: 2 swollen nodes in abdomen...

Thank you clj and rp ....my husband's oncologist feels that the swollen lymph nodes might be a result of persisting issues with my husband's incision site and a fistula that we thought was totally healed (but might not be)....his onc said that we need to figure out exactly what's going on....so, he ...

Re: 2 swollen nodes in abdomen...

I don't have experience with that type of incision but I have had internal stitches fester up through my incision. Thought this might help. Good luck to you, hope your appt goes good. It's interesting that you mention this . . . one of the nurse's at our surgeon's office thought there might be a st...

2 swollen nodes in abdomen...

Hey everybody, So, despite his stage 4 status, my husband has been doing great...we met with his onc in early September and all bloodwork/numbers were so good the onc didn't think a scan was necessary.....I pushed for one (as it had been nearly 9 months) and he scheduled a CT scan. We got the result...

Re: Down to 104 pounds. Help

Hello, and I'm sorry that you are having so much trouble gaining weight back...my husband was on TPN post surgery for at least a month...it may have been longer....it was very good for him because it took away some of the pressure to eat more solid food for nutrition....the solid foods were very dif...
