Re: The Liver Spots they missed

My pre-surgery CT scan showed a perfectly clear liver. My Surgeon found a subcapsular mass and removed it for biopsy. It was a met. Next 2 CT scans continued to show clear liver. When I finally was able to have an MRI after finishing chemo, it picked up another little subcapsular mass and 2 malignan...

Re: Input Regarding Continuing Oxi with Neuropathy Present

BTW, during the flare, my sensation could better be described as burning than tingling.

Re: Cancer and coffe????

No problems with coffee here. My infusion center offers coffee or tea or other beverages to everyone.

I think it completely depends on your personal relationship with coffee. :)

Re: Input Regarding Continuing Oxi with Neuropathy Present

If were you, I'd discontinue the oxy. The additional benefit at this point is very small. The potential for long term or permanent damage is great. The cold sensitivity pattern you had in rounds 1-9 is very normal. It's somewhat different from the persistent tingling/loss of sensation of neuropathy....

Re: Muscle joint soreness - but not as a result of chemo?

Most of the pain you've been having sounds like what I've been experiencing since May. But mine is definitely caused by inflammation caused by Keytruda, so the only thing that has helped me--the anti-inflammation drug Celebrex--probably won't help you. The other thing I finally did was aquatherapy: ...

Re: Suggestions for treatment facility for liver and lung mets

It makes sense to me to treat his liver mets. So what if it isn't "curative" by itself? With those gone he can attack the lung mets. Would they prefer to wait until the liver mets grow until they DO pose an immediate problem, and then say they are inoperable after all? Forgive me, I can't ...

Re: Zantac and Colon Cancer

I had dreadful heartburn around the 6 mos mark of my sole pregnancy, and my OB/Gyn wouldn't even let me take Tums. She was hardcore! :D

I'm kind of surprised your doctors okayed Zantac in quantity.

Re: New Member, newly diagnosed

hksvcap1, FWIW I had a right hemicolectomy with many lymph nodes removed for biopsy (as you can see in my sig), along with sections of omentum and a little chunk of my liver. Cecum and appendix also, as is standard. My surgeon, who did an excellent job, especially in identifying my little liver met ...

Re: New Member, newly diagnosed

Please don't apologize for long posts! No one is in a hurry, and the point is to communicate! :) Sounds like you've been through the mill over the last few months. As Punky44 said, you will likely start feeling more in control and less whipsawed when you have more data--like more biopsy results--and...
