I can’t believe that I am Planning surgery and chemos in my head even before I’m told any results. I think I’m preparing for the worst. I wil...

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!!!

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...

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...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

So I had the scan yesterday and of course, I checked my blood work and Cea level on the portal. Longest day ever to say the least! Cea level went from 1.1 to 1.2. My blood work looked all normal except for the ALT (liver enzyme number). It went from 25 to 30. Not sure why or if it means my liver is ...
