Re: Newly diagnosed rectal cancer

I completed my last radiation this morning. I will take the last of my chemo pills this evening. I’m so glad this treatment is complete. I’m ready to start healing so I can get on to the next phase.

Re: Newly diagnosed rectal cancer

My radiation oncologist gave me some lidocaine. I remember it felt like broken glass every time I urinated. Yes! It’s awful. My radiation doctor was out of the office so I saw a different doctor yesterday and he told me to use the lidocaine gel, too! My regular doctor really doesn’t want to offer a...

Re: Newly diagnosed rectal cancer

'm new here. I have been reading your posts for a few weeks. I was diagnosed about 2 months after you. I wish I had some helpful advise for you. I've been reading everyone's posts to see what will be in the next few weeks to come. I have been on Oral Capcitabine for the past 12 days. I'll have 1 we...

Re: Newly diagnosed rectal cancer

The only thing in terms of something to look forward to is that the pain should fade a lot a week after the end of treatment and completely two weeks after. Thank you for saying that! It’s good to hear that there is an end in sight. Today was the first boost treatment and I am afraid that is super ...

Re: Newly diagnosed rectal cancer

If I am counting correctly, you are approaching the end of treatment. Keep crossing off the remaining days - you are almost there! Hang in there - we are all rooting for you. Yes, this is my last week! Yesterday I had a really down day. I think because the doctor I saw yesterday was telling me how ...

Re: Diagnosed while working abroad

It’s good that you can nap. They say you heal best when sleeping. I am tired but can hardly sleep, I think too much. Sleep as much as you can. I’m glad they gave you things to help along the way. That really is good that you have something to help early. I know what you mean about food. I don’t want...

Re: Newly diagnosed rectal cancer

This chemo radiation combo has got to be the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through. Any ladies who’ve been through this have any suggestions for me for the burning in the inner labia? I’ve tried the suggestions from different doctors and nurses but nothing has helped. They’ve said try aquaphor or vag...

Re: Newly diagnosed rectal cancer

Things have been pretty rough here but I think it's normal for the treatment. I'm just trying to get through each day so I can mark it off and go on to the next. I always want to ask a million questions but really, it is what it is and I have to get through it. Today one of the men we see often at r...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I hope things are going well with the accommodations to make things easier at work. I understand wanting to go in to the office rather than working from home. I'm sorry it's gotten so cold so fast. Hope you get some warmer days popping in here and there for a little relief.

Re: Colon cancer diagnosed July 2019

My treatment is different for rectal cancer and I started out with radiation and chemo which I'm doing right now. It's also with the idea of shrinking the tumor. I don't really have the answers as I'm still new at all of this and on the first leg of my treatment but hopefully you'll get some good ad...
