Re: Input Regarding Continuing Oxi with Neuropathy Present

Hi I’m sorry your going through this, there is such a steep learning curve and so many decisions to be made. I made 8 treatments at full strength , 2 at reduced then switched drugs on the 11th and did not do the 12th and final treatment as my numbness had spread up my feet and legs to my knees. My h...

Re: I don't have much longer.

Hi Joe I’m so sorry to hear you and your family is going through this. I think this is a safe place to vent your fears/worries and speak plainly about what your dealing with. You are facing the exact thing we are all scared of and fighting so hard to beat. I think most of us here have probably thoug...

Re: Colon Cancer Stage 3 May2019 new member

Hi Nate. 33 I experienced the frozen hand trick, I believe it was called ataxia. It’s from the oxali and is another symptom of neuropathy that you should mention to your doctor. I was able to complete 10 of my 12 sessions before the neuropathy became to severe nut I probably should have stopped one ...

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

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