Re: Pain following right hemicolectomy

My cecum mass and right hemicolectomy was done December 21st, 2017. I was discharged after 48 hours. But pooped the night of my surgery (it was a surprise poop).

Re: New here, recently diagnosed, just had surgery but more to come...

Two weeks ago I had my second round of FOLFOX. Within 5 minutes of leaving the infusion clinic I had an anaphylactic allergic reaction — tongue swollen, bronchial spasms, low blood pressure. I returned to the doctor’s office, where they pushed steroids and Benadryl to address the anaphylaxis. Today ...

Re: Single and dealing

Maybe you can categorize the help and ask each individual to help with one category. That way you don’t overload any one friend and each friend can become proficient at their task. In my experience allowing friends to help is a gift for the friend as much as it is to you.

Advice for first appointment with oncologist after diagnosis

Hello all. I’m new to the forum and have a question. I had a colonoscopy on December 1,2017, during which they found a 5 cm mass in the cecum. I had a right hemicolectomy on December 21, 2017.
