Re: Dang 1cm Liver Met!

Ok resection done! I’m still here! I was sent home after a day. I was walking and eating on my own so they said I could recoup at home. Completely laproscopically and the surgeon said all looked clear via the internal ultrasound. Congratulations! It sounds like it was an easy surgery, have a nice r...

So cool that you are training strenght! And I am glad I inspired you. In the Alps I lost my Suunto running watch and then I bought a Garmin Fenix 5s. It is measuring hearth rate, sleep, stress and has also some smart watch functions.

Re: Two-Month Postop Update

Your wife has really gone through a lot in the last year. Congratulation on her NED status and recovery. I read your story now because I probably missed the first post being myself at the hospital at the end of 2017. It is especially interesting with the intermittent fasting during chemo and also th...

Training after reversal (running)

One year ago I ran 10 km in a race and my average was 4’22’’ per km, not my best time, but not bad given my age :wink: two weeks later I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. Today I ran the same race, my pace was 4’44’’ per km, I haven’t been training a lot obviously, also because I was on holiday for ...

I might have some A type traits like that I like to run and compete with myself, but I definetly don’t like to compete with colleagues at work.

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

Hi Mike,
Sorry to read that you are having such a tough time. I also was taking a probiotic with a very small dose of psyllium (pills with both together).

I hope it settles soon
