Re: Please advise. Blood in stool!! Scary!

Always best to push for a colonoscopy if for no other reason than to set your mind at ease.

Good luck with your appointment. :)

Re: Anyone have experience with this???

I've heard of a few that have reached long term NED status. They don't post here much anymore from what I understand. I was just turned down for HIPEC which was devastating for me.

Re: Life Earthquake: Wednesday Feb 21 Rectal Cancer T3C N2 M0

Today my oncologist office called to let me know they had phoned in an RX for numbing cream to put on my port one hour before my appointment, so glad they did this. I can't imagine the port being used this Friday as it is very sensitive to touch, the incision very raw looking, with plenty of bruisi...

Re: Life hacks anyone?

For the first month or so, I would use a large clip that you use for a stack of papers (those big black clips for office use) and just clip the seatbelt to my sleeve at the shoulder. I kept it in the cup holder when not in use. Now I don't use anything. Took a while before it was no longer sensitive

She has pretty thick, healthy hair so we are hoping for the best. Also what about travel while on chemo? Any experience or advice? My strong-wi...

Re: Stage 2- no follow up care???

I was 2A. I really don't mean to scare you. I'm now dealing with a nasty metastasis. I had no chemo after the initial surgery. No lymph nodes were involved, all margins clear. 3 years after the resection, metastasis. And now here I am. Fighting a huge battle. I'm just unlucky, or so I've been told. ...
