Re: Need Support - Told today I'm on Palliative Care

I hope the new regime will shrink the cancer and hold things under control. Enyoing any minute with our kids and loved ones is for me the key to happiness, «palliative care» sounds scary, but so does «cancer» and «stage 4». We need to stay positive and keep on moving...

A big hug

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Update- Onc said no chemo needed! She says my Cea is 1.5 and the committee said no chemo at this time. Next scan in December. Surgeon had clear margins and my blood work is good. I’m terrified. Not sure to be happy or waiting for the show to drop. I will now do anything and everything to keep this ...

Re: can stage 1 colon cancer post colectomy spread to the lungs?

It is very difficult to answer, but after 5 years from resection of primary tumor it is unlikely to find new metastases. If so they have grown very slowly and they are not so aggressive.

Re: Cancer Again: Not Colon?

They have a different histology. So when they do a biopsy, can recognize where the cells come from by looking at them with a microscope.

Re: Update from Rikimaroo

Good luck for tomorrow! I had a colostomy and the ileostomy on the same site, so it is possible.

Hope it is not cancer.

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

Here it is very common to bike to work and in winter we put tires with spikes. It is so nice to bike past the traffic jam and if I get soaked I can even shower at work. I started with plank after 5 weeks from reversal surgery and did a few crunches just to test, but did not feel pain. Now I am back ...

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

I have also noticed that the stress function is very reliable, this evening I did some exercise at home and even if the weights are not so heavy (3 kg) it is a good mainteinance traning in addiction to the one at the gym. I have also started to run to work and alternate it to the biking. Even if it ...

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...
