Re: More chemo after a solitary lung met?

Claudia, Could you please say where you were getting your treatment? From the format of dates in your signature, it appears that you are not in the United States. In the United States, there is no clear protocol for this situation and the patient is asked to make a decision. Different cancer center...

Hi Mike,
I also have a Garmin and from my experience it is very easy to go both up and down very quickly with VO2 max. This is the effect of ice on the road:

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

Hi! It is always hard to run after a period of stop. Here it is very icy and I prefer to run outside with my dog while the kids are running indoor. So it is more a matter of balance and trying to see the slippery spots in the darkness. :)

All the best

Re: More chemo after a solitary lung met?

Hi! I also had VATS for a solitary lung metastasis and did not do any chemo after that. The oncologist said it is not the protocol anymore here and it would have been different if it was in the liver.
The metastasis was sincrone and detected at diagnosis.

All the best

Re: Surgery Monday 7th 2019 Salvage Resection Surgery

Nice to hear that surgery went well and congratulation with the new family member! I really love huskies, I had two of them, the first in 1991 and the second left us in 2015.

All the best

I experience also that running and strength with abdominals helps a lot with making things progress through the intestine.

Re: Thoughts on Stage IV...

I of course looked at stats but is not really depending on me, so it is just to live as happy as possible while you can. Then you might be the lucky survivor. I also agree with your considerations, but how high was the chance to get cancer at 45, given that I was not smoking, I was training and eati...

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

It sounds like you don't have a bag if I'm reading the timeline correctly. It would be quite amazing if you could run as fast as you do with a bag on. There were a lot of things I didn't do for fear of it shearing off. I don’t have a bag (anymore). I ran a relay race in Oslo last year, just to prov...

Re: Do I need to eat meat during chemoradiation?

Hi, I did not eat meat during chemoradiation, just a bit right after the surgery, because at the hospital we were served it. I did work well for me. We were adviced to eat what we like, I would add to be careful with fibers, because during chemoradiation the tissues can be irritated and it is easier...

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

Hi! The colostomy was reconnected when they operated the tumor and made an ileostomy instead. They used the same opening (so my ileo was on the left side).

All the best
