Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Hi Claudia-
You are correct. We have to sort of put it on a shelf. But other things trigger a panic attack. No one gets it like we do. Every tinge of pain makes me worry. Therapy is next if we can just get out of the house!!!!
Take care!

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Hi there- I say get the colonoscopy. Colon cancer patients are too scared to go a year or more! He will understand that. I’m so glad you have been clear this long. That’s wonderful. So happy that there are indeed happy stories. Yes it’s definitely PTSD but on high. I just watched the beginning of De...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Hi all- I figured since we are on a Coronacation I’d check in. I actually forgot to post in Feb when I got my clear scan! So happy for it but I’m learning that PTSD is very real and I can’t just let it go and put it in the past. Stage 4 won’t let me. Still feel action in my liver but nothing on the ...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

And include the old, those who refuse treatment ana those who die of something else. So those numbers will not help you. Join support grou...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

I get so much hope with threads like these. It could seriously be me that's NED with no reoccurrence. It has to be someone, right? :lol: Yes it can be. And I feel like some handle this like a chronic illness. We have to be hopeful and sometimes put cancer in a box on a shelf. Keep doing all we can ...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

My CEA was 0.9, which was new and some diverticulitis, but all the docs suggested I was doing quite well. No more colonoscopy follow ups for the next 5 years, which I find strange??? so will ge...

Re: Talk me down..CT results...

Breathe- cancer can make us nuts. I was told if a lymph node under the pit comes and goes, it’s nothing. I wouldn’t worry-if the dr isn’t worried, you shouldn’t be. Thank goodness though that these scans see everything even the minor stuff.
