CT/Soft Tissue Density

Hi All, I just had my first CT scan since surgery. I had to go to a different radiologist because I have moved.

Re: I need help deciding treatment after surgery!! THIS isn't Easy!!

I also had a situation where I wasn’t sure what to do. But mine was ITC that was found
I would suggest a second opinion. Some hospitals will only do standard treatment.

Re: Rectal cancer diagnose with isolated tumor cells (ITC)

I’m not sure about CTC. They didn’t mention that. I had just 1 ITC that was found. I think they are two different things, but not sure.

Re: Robotic surgery and LAR syndrome

I had robotic LAR and I remember the doctor mentioning that he had an urologist and another doctor there that lit up the nerves near the surgery site. They had all the nerves lit up so they could avoid any issues. I believe this is why I don’t have much of an issue.

Re: Alcohol use since diagnosis

I love my wine. After surgery I stopped drinking But I’m back to having a glass or two a night. Maybe I should cut back, but I enjoy my wine! I think moderation is the answer. Not sure if two glasses a night is!

Re: Rectal cancer diagnose with isolated tumor cells (ITC)

Thanks for all the information. I will definitely read up on all of this.
I was so excited when they told me that I didn’t need treatment, but now I still find myself worrying about that ITC.
One day at a time! I’m heading to see my grand kids in PA. They keep me busy and happy!
