Re: In canada MSK not option

As far as I know Sunnybrook is the only centre in Canada that offers HAI and you have to be a resident of Ontario to enter the trial.

Trying, among others please read the posts from stu about her mom if you need inspiration.

Re: Colonoscopy prep question

I realize this is too late for the OP, but here's my situation. My colonoscopy is scheduled for the first week of December. I've been starting to feel a little antsy about it and I needed to know what day(s) to book off work so I just pulled out the prep sheet to see what the procedure and timing is...

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

My cancer centre has much the same process for blood work, although I suspect the volume of patients in a day is much smaller than at DF. There are two technicians (I'm not sure of their actual title) who draw blood and it is always the same two no matter what day it is. Anyway they both are so good...

Re: Review of my Journey so far -> ⓊⓟⒹⒶⓉⒺ Nov/2018

As a kid I remember watching the TV show with David Carradine, I think it was called Kung Fu, then a few years later watching The Karate Kid. It is so encouraging to see the teachings of mental strength, determination, and resolve play out in real life in this thread. Thanks CRguy for the gentle les...

Re: A touch of neuropathy

I shaved my legs today. The last time I did it was likely just before my surgery because of course I wanted to look well groomed while having 18" of my guts cut out of me. As soon as I started chemo my platelets tanked, I had regular nosebleeds, and I was on daily blood thinner shots so a nick ...

Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

I may have mentioned it before, but I am not really a dog person. I do like that rug, though. Lots of reds in it.

The guys missed having Thanksgiving leftovers so I am cooking a turkey today. In the oven so there will be stuffing and gravy. I'll probably have a tomato sandwich.

Re: Additional safety precautions for breastfeeding mothers and children?

Punky, Can you direct us to the research material and articles you read that have led you to essentially equate chemo recipients with Ebola victims? I'd love to see the one that tells us that it is unsafe to breathe the same air as a chemo recipient. Have you discussed with your mom what your plans ...
