Re: New to this, don’t know how to “chat”

My son was Dx'd stage 3 colon cancer 12/17. Had a bowel resection and 12 rounds, of FOLFOX. How he worked every day, I don't know, but he did. One day at a time, one foot in front of the other. Some days were much better than others. Had a clear colonoscopy last fall--now on a every 3 yr plan. Now h...

Lingering fatigue and changes in stool

My son completed chemo 7/2018. He is still experiencing fatigue, going to bed 7:30-8 every night. He does have a physically active job and works often 6 days a week, long hours. (Have I answered my own question here?) Is his fatigue normal over a year out? He's 48 now. He keeps a lot to himself, but...

Re: If you want prayer stop in here!

I pray "formally" twice daily for my son and all those living every day with cancer. I'm happy to have found this thread. I will continue to stand with all of you who believe in the power or prayer.

Re: Marking time from first diagnosed or??

Thank you all for your replies. I see there is no hard and fast rule for when to start marking time! My son's oncologist told us that colon cancer tends to recur most in the first 2 years, and his CC was found on a colonoscopy Nov. 2017 which is why I was asking. Thanks be to God his chest/abdominal...

Marking time from first diagnosed or??

When can we mark time to say we have had no cancer for 2 years, 3 years, etc?

Is it from the time of the very first Diagnosis? After the first surgery? When chemo ends?

A year ago

It was on Dec. 28, 2017 that my son informed me that he had colon cancer. Now, nearly a year later, after surgery and 12 rounds of chemo, he is doing very well. A year ago I was terrified. I know he is not out of the woods yet, but it is so good to see him without the chemo side effects, and with hi...
