Re: Today

Sorry for the late reply... I haven’t been spending much time in the forum but I’ll log on every now and then. I hope you’re feeling better since the last post. All of us here understand what you’re going through and it doesn’t help with our current climate of bad world news and winter gloom combo! ...

Optimism is half battle won! You’ve been an inspiration to many and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I’m happy you rang the bell!

Re: 1 year clear from stage IV

Congrats Rob! Nice hearing the good news and very happy you’re well. My husband too is around 1 year clear, but since we never really got an official date of his NED status, it’s around this time November to early December last year 2019. I’ll continue to pray for everyone’s good health :)

Re: Does anyone have experience Jane McLelland and starving cancer?

After reading that book, I enrolled in an experiment on myself. Based on studies, there’s no actual way to starve cancer. Anyway, I was determined to offer my husband the best diet during his treatment and thought I’d install a continuous glucose monitor on myself to see if any of the meals I am mak...

Re: The stigma of cancer

You guys are not alone on this. When the news got out about my husband, all my group chats went silent for several weeks. I usually receive forward jokes and texts from my relatives and friends on a daily basis, so it was very obvious when I stopped receiving messages. I think when people don’t know...

Re: Please help.

I wouldn’t wait. Strongly suggest getting a second opinion or try to insist further investigation ASAP.

Re: Surgery or no?

I’m so sorry to hear the news about your liver spread. Did they do a biopsy on the primary tumour? Apparently with a bigger specimen they’re able to find as Lee said other mutations if any. I think you’re on the right track in terms of going ahead with a few infusions of the strongest chemo and perh...

Re: Surgery or no?

Happy to read your positive post, Rachel. You’re so lucky to get help with the sheets! I’ve watched so many YouTube videos on how to get it right but I always end up fighting with the duvet regardless. LOL! And to your question — yes, his oncologist personally compared the scan together with the rad...

Re: Surgery or no?

That’s really good news! I’m happy you’re able to finally proceed with surgery. Do you have any family living in NYC? It’s really time to gather “team Rachel” to support you through recovery :) If this is of any encouragement at all, my husband’s lymph nodes were noticeably smaller post surgery. He ...

Re: What should I do???

Yes indeed that’s worrying but since nothing can be seen in the scan, there’s no action that can be taken. I think it’s a good idea to let him feel good, and I hope you take care of yourself too.
