Re: DH is back in the hospital :(

I have zero experience with any of those choices, but it seems like #2 would be the way to go? I am imagining that thing that they put in cows for bloat....

Re: Another clear CT, again!

Thanks yall! Just got back from seeing the oncologist and surgeon, everything is just fine! Labs look fantastic, CEA is stable at 2.2.

Colonoscopy will be at the end of July or beginning of August and I don't get another CT until September.

I'm digging this surveillance protocol. :lol:

Re: My CRC with liver mets journey

Gawd. You've had to deal with so much!

How are other things in your life going? Are you guys all stuck in the house? Rationing toilet paper?

Hang in there.

I really like my new oncologist!

Met him today, he's simply lovely. I liked him even more when he told me my CEA was 1.5 :shock: That's a new low! See him again in 3 months. He said he likes to see everyone on a 3 month schedule for the first two years, then every six months for two years. He estimated I'd live to see 75. :lol: I'm...

Shit. This was supposed to be an all clear update! I know you have to be freaking the hell out right now. I have absolutley no experience with what you're having to deal with, and I have no idea if that qualities as a significant growth or something that's still under control that can be shrunk with...

Re: What is radiation/chemo treatment actually like?

That's just so neat! We have 5 dogs, 3 GSD and two lord knows what mixes. Combined, it's 400lbs of dog!! I think two of our shepherds would really excel at something like flyball but we live in the middle of nowhere. :roll:

Keep on trucking, you'll be finished before you know it.

Re: Coughing up blood

Just adding to the list of folks that bled while on Avastin. Mine was a constant bloody nose.

Hope you both ate doing well!
