Scared of surgery in need of wisdom...

So some are familiar with the history so far. My wonderful husband is scared (sh*tless) about the upcoming colon resection and HAI pump placement. He's afraid because his family doesn't have a good track history with surgery, especially open surgery. Most resulting in death a few weeks after being c...

Re: Thoughts on Stage IV...

Stay away from Dr. Google! What Dr. Goigle showed me aside from your original 14% numbers was this forum of that I'm grateful! This place showed me every body is different and cancer categorized in CRC also varies case by case. I wrote down all my negativity in the beginning to expel the thoughts an...

Re: Got post-op staging

I’m going to inquire about Disability. He was laid off just weeks before learning he had cancer. Just so much right now. Praying insurance will cover this next chemo. YES! You'd be amazed what you can get disability for nowadays! My husband was in a similar situation. January 2018 2 weeks into the ...

Re: Vision & chemo

This is refreshing to read. DH has "cloudy" vision at best right now his RN couldn't confirm or deny chemo involvement but is setting up an eye appt anyway to be safe. This week is the last chemo before surgery at the end of the month

Re: My CRC with liver mets journey

Gina refresh my memory but how long was your chemo break after your first surgery for the pump and colon resection. And roughly how long before it was decided to resection of the liver.

Re: Codman vs Medtronic

I was pleasantly surprised that the surgeon doing our pump at OSU did Her fellowship at MSK and is very familiar with their practices as well as Dr. Kemeny.

Re: Codman vs Medtronic

Gina and rad

Thank you both for your input. What I am really doing with this thread is taking a picture of the replies and sending them to my hubby so he can read it and I'm not just telling him. I think that helps.

He thanked me for yours yesterday Rad!

Re: Had to have high hopes for a living...

DH wasn't very happy realizing he's going to miss trick or treat this year (if they don't do it the weekend before). My reply was getting this done could mean many more truck or treats he WON'T miss. Also 2nd surgeon doing the pump decided open surgery would be better. Quicker OR time, better chance...

Codman vs Medtronic

So surgery is in sight with a Codeman pump. DH isn't seeing the glass half full so to speak. He is focused on the numbers which never sound appealing from the doctor even when they say overall survival is better with the pump he hears only 50% better rate of lasting another 5 years. The plan is to h...

Re: Had to have high hopes for a living...

SURGERY SCHEDULED! October 29th!

OSU will not only implant a codeman pump but also do the colon tumor back to back! Laparoscopic surgery here we come.

Hubby is scared, doing my best to reassure him this is what all his chemo suffering is for to get this crap out!

Re: cat vs mri vs pet scan

Every doctor/specialist is different in terms of what they prefer and how they interpret scans. Recently my husband's PET told a radiologist that the liver mets had progressed, this didn't sit well with our oncologist and to her something just didn't add up with his normal level numbers and nothing ...
