Re: Back from NIH good news kind of about TIL trial

I m back from my return to discuss my starting the TIL trial. I got what I feel is mixed results about starting TIL trial. After reviewing all my scans and labs they have decided that I'm doing so well on FOLFIRI + Avistin that they are delaying my starting the trial because I've made just good pro...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I got in 8.5 hours of sleep last night and had a few naps yesterday. Control seems to be somewhat better but I need more of the fiber to come through to know how much better things can be. I'm trying three servings per day. I also got in a bit more food yesterday so maybe that helps. It's nice to ha...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I tried a standalone case and it didn't work. A little checking and I found that lots of people have the same problem with the Glossary package. It generally doesn't work with common tools. I use texmaker and it looks like it doesn't support the Glossary package. That's a common problem with package...

Good to hear and hoping that they get to resectable or vanish altogether.

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I spent about 30 minutes trying to get the glossary package to work and nothing comes out. So I'd have to spend more time playing with it. My usual approach on a new document is to take an old one to start with and then remove the text leaving a shell. When experimenting, I usually add the nw code i...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

... I haven't done a glossary for a book or article in a long time. I think that something I wrote back in the 1980s had something like that. I'd have to see if LaTeX has an automatic way of generating a glossary... I think you should be able to generate a glossary within LaTeX. See link below. (Th...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I wrote the first paragraph of the introduction. I find that it helps to put something down and get the document started as a placeholder. Thanks for sharing the overview of your writing project. Would you be open to suggestions regarding possible format, content, etc,? For example, I would like to...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Mike, et al- I've not been following what you have tried post-reversal, so apologizes if this is redundant/you have gone this route already. Have you tried bulking up the stool with metamucil (and also starting on immodium)? For me, the first two weeks were rough and horrible- loose stools, constan...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

It's turning out to be a great day. I think that's the theme - great days and awful days. The GI system is behaving itself today. All of those little niggles related to the surgery that affects the abs seem to be gone. Things like opening heavy doors, getting in and out of the car, getting in and ou...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Good sleep last night. Six hours solid (I had some long naps yesterday afternoon and evening too). Went to the bathroom and several came out; still relatively thin but longer than before. I picked up some fiber supplements yesterday too and will start taking those today.

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I took a long nap this afternoon after picking up supplies (diapers, wipes, toilet paper). My GI system was fairly quiet which helped in getting some overdue rest. I still need more sleep through.

Re: RANDOM QUESTIONS

I found this mildly interesting study result (thought it doesn't specifically answer your question): Results Among 2636 patients with stage III colon cancer treated with FOLFOX, MMR status was available for 2501. Of these, 252 (10.1%) showed deficient MMR status (dMMR; 134 women, 118 men; median age...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Hi Mike, I'm glad to hear you're seeing improvement and your control is getting much better! That must be a relief, overall. I'm 3 weeks post-op now and find my daily routine is still all over the place, but know it goes with the territory. I'm back at work as well. I have days where I go 5-6 times...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I know you are trying to use fasting to control your output but could that be causing you issues as well? The constant fasting and then eating and then fasting again may be confusing your digestive system and adding to the output issues. As well your colon probably needs a steady amount of food to ...
