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 ...

Re: Folfiri after Folfox fails

Thank you! That is so helpful. My onc at MSK tried to be hopeful today, but she is also realistic. We still don't have the genetics -- though we know I'm negative for Lynch. That there are suspicious lesions in the peritoneal cavity was what most concerning to her. How quickly did you start to see ...

Last Sept 2018 I had a lapro live resection and have been NED since. Next scan in June. Praying too. But I...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Stu, you're about the nicest person I've run in to online. :D I've made an executive decision that after all of this is over (chemo, resection, mop up) and I'm declared cancer free... we're going to Florida to visit my father in law and his wife in their new home. We're going to make it an epic roa...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

So on Saturday it will be a year since I did my last chemo. I feel like I should do something like scream off a mountain or mourn my former self. I have not come to terms with death- I don’t care what the disgusting stats are (14% survival rate for 5 yrs). I refuse to think this is my end. I’m six m...

Omg! When is that???? I want it out! Oh to feel completely normal-it May never happen....but to have the port out for a long time would be great! Stage 4 makes it very iffy.

Yes, I hate scan time. We are all in this together. You are in my prayers. Sending you best luck. By the way, our kids are about the same age. My two boys are 10 and 14.



Hi Milk Tea-

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.
