Claudia Hope they are good results! I know how hard it can be too wait. I've had a fair amount of progression and waiting for...

Re: Possible stenosis at anastomosis

Hi Susie, Hope all goes well when you see your doctor but it sounds like your personal anatomy is just a bit quirky (in a good way I'm sure!) Anything new and outside the norm is always stressful. I echo your comments, Karen aka Miss Molly is a treasured resource of information and reassurance to al...

Re: Mop up chemo experiences

Glad to hear that you're feeling better. I react to anything unusual now too, things that I would ignore before get scrutinized and researched. If output is a lot I worry about dehydration, if it's too little I worry about blockage... it's enough to drive one bonkers! Take care and keep on feeling b...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Good luck with the remaining test results! I hope everything comes back normal and clean as a whistle so you can continue to enjoy your summer! I have no idea how bloodwork can look perfect when there are mets and rising CEA but that's how mine has been for awhile now. I've never been NED so I'm gra...

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

So cool! Only a week to go, good luck with this last surgery! Atoq It's hard to describe the feelings. Sometimes happy, sometimes odd, sometimes worried. I have all of these Ostomy Supplies as well and I've been looking around the web to see what to do with them. Life with cancer changes you so muc...
