Re: Floating Stool - bowel question

Re: Floating Stool - bowel question

I appreciate the replies everyone- I’m making an appointment with my general doc to discuss this and will update in case this is something that other people might search on this forum. I should have done this long ago but am dithering for some reason this happens regardless of location, and has been...

Re: Floating Stool - bowel question

Hi Guys
Thanks for the reply! I believe my fat content to be very reasonable even lower then it has been through much of my last few years. I guess that’s why I’m puzzled as there is no dietary reason that I can find for such a change
Thanks again

Floating Stool - bowel question

Hi guys Bowel question here :D - I’m wondering if any of you have experienced floating stools over a long period of time? I’ve had a sigmoid coloctomy 14 months ago and finished chemo 5 months ago. For the past 3 to 4 months all my bowel movements float, some movements are easier then others but I w...

Re: smallest tumors that turned up on your PET, PET/CT or PET/MRI ??

I really cant thank you guys enough! I have been in a depressed kind of funk thinking I should maybe just coast but anxious about it as well, your responses really help me to see its not unreasonable to request more information/tests. I have a colonoscopy tomorrow and my Onc on Thursday to go over a...

Re: smallest tumors that turned up on your PET, PET/CT or PET/MRI ??

Hi All Just thought I would update. The scans have shown no growth for the last 3 months so they called it stable. The kidney node is still indeterminate and the liver they think is NAFLD. I see the doctor in a couple weeks but I think they want to take a watch and see approach. Im not sure Im comfo...

Re: Crazy cancer anxiety vs. legitimate concerns -- how do you differentiate?

Leon, I think you're right about the surveillance period being tougher in some ways than active treatment. Chemo was about taking charge and doing something to actively fight my disease, whereas the aftermath is more along the lines of passively waiting for it to reappear (or--hopefully--stay away)...

Re: "Dr" Google can be good

A well-informed patient is an empowered patient, and moreover when doctors realize that you have educated yourself about your condition they are more likely to give you accurate information, rather than generalizations intended to reassure those who just want to be told what to do. . I agree 100% w...

Re: Possible Third Diagnoses

Hi Beckbeckbobeck and KimT We could talk about how much it sucked. I felt that it was a blessing of sorts to have gone through all I had, because I knew what she needed. .[/quote] This all resonates with me so much. The positive statements, while made with loving intentions, can be so hard to smile ...

Re: smallest tumors that turned up on your PET, PET/CT or PET/MRI ??

Hi martd Another Onc at the clinic mentioned biopsy in passing but I forgot to ask my own onc about it. I hesitate a bit there because of the chance of needle track seeding should it actually be cancerous, but of course if there is no imaging techniques that can answer then that is probably the next...
