Re: Vit D and immunotherapy

Depending on your skin colour - black , brown or white , daily dose of sunshine is the best solution to ensure your vitamin D levels. Darker your skin colour the longer time you need to be out in direct sunshine. White skinned people need maybe 15to 20 minutes of exposure and up to an hour for reall...

Re: An aspirin a day helps keep bowel cancer away

I have been taking aspirin 150 mg since the past 3 years or so.
It is definitely beneficial for people having Lynch Syndrome as per the various articles I have read.
I would strongly recommend it.

Re: Switching back to Pembro

Finally after almost 3 years of immunotherapy and 2 years of clear CT and blood work , the onco team has decided to stop further infusions. It is still largely an uncharted territory but some data has emerged to suggest that it is time to remove the immunotherapy life jacket . Tighter monitoring reg...

Re: Adventures in Immunotherapy - Hopeful beginnings

Best of luck Trevor. 4 Infuisions may be too few to assess. Be wary of pseudoprogression. I am sure it will work out for you. Hi Henry123.....can you tell me more about your warning to beware of pseudo progression? My husband was just taken off of a clinical trial after 3 infusions due to “progress...

Re: “Near” Complete Clinical Response and what to do next

I would say trust your doctors. This is what they do. Also, a stoma isn’t automatic. I was prepped for one but the surgeon determined that it wasn’t necessary in my case. They won’t know anything for sure until they open you up and see what’s what. I concur that they don't have exact picture till t...

Re: My Sister is talking to my bf behind my back

Let go of all the negativities inside you. Forgive everyone including yourself . Seek forgiveness from those whom you may have hurt. Be at peace with all that's happening around you. You are here for greater things than worrying about behaviour of your sister or/ and your bf. None is worth an iota o...
