Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

When will you know the results of the last scan? I also had one on the 20th of August, light CAT to the chest and ecography to the liver. I will have a scope on the 4th of September and then get the answer. But I am not worried, if I am sick I will face it when it is real and not just a possibility...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

I had a very rough day. PTSD at its finest. I had a scan today with bloodwork. No nurses at MSK so they decided to send anyone with a port to the chemo suites to get accessed. I was very upset- like panic attack upset. I went to the chemo suites crying and refused to sit in the reclining chemo chair...

Re: Liver resection scheduled!!

Amy, I can’t wait for you to kill that Dick. Will you do HAI? Have you thought about that Cimetidine before and after to prevent recurrence? Get it out!!! Open your eyes after surgery and say NED! :D Here it is- https://ecancer.org/journal/8/full/485-repurposing-drugs-in-oncology-redo-cimetidine-as-...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Would love to know what this could be but I really don’t want to see my doctor. I’m usually very achy in the morning - knees are killing me, left upper shoulder pain. Ok I get I’m overweight but I can’t really walk far or workout in this condition. No idea how it happened. Started at the end of June...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Teacher2017, I work in a school district too. I was wondering if you were able to work during your FOLFOX treatments. I started my treatment in the end of June and am trying to figure out what I am going to do in the fall. Congrats on your recent test results. God bless! Nate! It wasn’t easy becaus...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Colonoscopy on Monday. I have the best miralax prep but I hate the thought of doing this again. The gi dr didn’t want me to do it for another three years until I told him the cancer went to my liver and I had a resection. Then suddenly his smile faded and all willing to do it. I think cancer is men...

Re: Totally in Shock Stage 2 to Stage 4 in 9 Months

Two years ago I never would have thought I’d be posting on here and other sites trying to give some hope. I went from 3c to 4 and was absolutely devastated. Long story short, after a successful liver resection, I have been NED for nine months! I did the 12 rounds of folfox before the resection. I ha...
