Re: Surgery Tomorrow - 27th New Zealand Time

Thanks for the update, we've missed your cheery voice here.
Wow 18+ days, I can only imagine how you must feel. And you have had such a tough go of it from the very beginning too.

Sending wishes that everything is on an upswing for you from now on.

Cheers,

I'm cleaning house...

Another step forward today. I am off to the pharmacy this afternoon to return my sharps bin and I won't be coming back home with an empty one!!! I'm also returning a box of unused Lovenox shots, plus some unused anti-nausea meds. By my estimation I've self-injected 225 blood thinner shots (at $25 pe...

Re: With apologies to the Bare Naked Ladies, but...

PET scan was on Thursday. I thought I would have to drink a contrast fluid like for the CT scan but was pleasantly surprised when all they did was inject me with radioactive isotope F18. Judging from where the bed started in the scanner they were looking at both femur bones and hips in addition to t...

Re: Two-Month Postop Update

. . . Come what may, we're planning on leaving this godforsaken country behind us and returning to Italy in the new year, so that's something to look forward to. All the best for your return home, you have had an 'eventful' journey so far. Out of curiousity which country is the godforsaken one, Aus...

Hey, I remember that song, just had no idea it was Kenny Rogers.
I'll be using those lyrics when I register with the nurse on Monday for the review of my PET scan results - " I just dropped in to see what condition my condition is in"

Re: Peripheral neuropathy post chemo

I start each day with a large dose of "grin and bear it" and try to make sure that I am getting enough B12 in my diet or, if necessary, with supplements. I looked at the suggested prescription meds that mask symptoms but they all come with their own side effects and contraindications so th...

Re: Bev G

Such sad news to read here. From reading through the forum archives she always had a helpful answer or comment to share. She will be missed.

Re: Colon cancer: my treatment and side effects

Folic acid is thought to exacerbate neuropathy if taken while receiving folfox. It is an additive in many foods and can be hard to avoid. My oncologist was aware that I was taking both an iron supplement and multi vitamins during chemo but didn't have any concerns. My neuropathy didn't show up until...

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

Stu, it is really easy to post pictures here. You first need to upload your photos to a picture hosting site. I used tinypic.com. You don't need to set up an account with them if you don't want to, it's free, and they have very simple instructions to guide you through the uploading and sharing proce...

Re: With apologies to the Bare Naked Ladies, but...

Thank you all for the thoughts, suggestions and the song lyrics. Truth be told, I've been Brian Wilsoning for the past four Sundays. Without the million dollars though. :) This all started when I had my pre-chemo appointment prior to round 11 with my substitute oncologist. I didn't have this dreadfu...

Re: We Need Some Laughs Here: Reloaded 2018

....and certain areas in Canada.

BTW Maggie, I just finished my lunch yogurt and gave the tub some extra scrapes just for you.
And, in case no one has said it, thanks for your posts in this thread. They do lighten my mood.
