Question about muscle issues

Hello everyone, it's been awhile since I have posted. My husband goes in for his yearly scans this next week and praying he will be clear. I do have a question for all of you. Has anyone developed any muscle issues after chemo, and I mean like a year after chemo? A few months ago my husband has deve...

Re: Nervous CEA rise

Thank you so much for your reply. I was kind of thinking that it could be inflammation. It's just so hard not to go to thinking cancer is back. That's crazy the cea threads. I will probably look through some of them.
Thanks so much

Nervous CEA rise

My husband had his colon surgery July 24th 2019, finished chemo March 2020. His CEA was 4.9 at time of diagnosis and then has been very low since his surgery, .5, .6 and then in Sept was undetectable. He has been having some pretty bad lower and middle back pain. He went to an orthopedic dr and had ...

Is skipping last chemo bad

My husband was due to have his last chemo last Monday, Yay so happy. However he decided to hold off due to the coronavirus outbreak. His doctor said that would be fine for no longer than 4 weeks. Well here we are today and things are worse. He is really afraid of going in to do it because he is at h...

CEA Quesition

My husband is nearing the end of his chemo, 2 left. So excited for him. He was unable to do the oxalilplatin, he did half dose once and couldn't do it again. I have a question about the CEA, when he was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer his cea was 4.6, a couple months after his surgery it was .7,...

Re: Stomach pain

Thanks Dave,
They got back to us yesterday and asked if he was constipated, and he is, they said it could be that but he's never had a pain before with constipation so we have a message into the Dr again, yesterday they didn't consult her it was just the MA, so today we messaged the dr. Just worried.

Re: Side effects with chemo

Sorry to hear your boyfriend has to endure this too. Hopefully his stomach pains will not last too long. My husband hasn't had diarrhea with his nor constipation sometimes his stomach causes a bowel movement other times it just hurts super bad then eventually goes away

Re: Side effects with chemo

So far today his stomach has been ok but he still keeps having bouts of nausea, this is day 10 is this normal? will it just keep being like this now? He is so tired of feeling sick I'm so afraid he'll just stop if it keeps going on like this.

Sorry another question about chemo but side effects

Sorry for all the questions, we actually have a call into his doctor but I doubt we will get a call back. Every treatment he seems to get some stomach upset maybe for a day, however this time he has had very bad stomach aches/cramps for like 4 days now, he is barely eating because of it. Is this nor...

Oh haha I see that now. My husband is an avid dirt bike rider so he had a crf450 for years so that was my first thought, didn't even think anything else.

Re: Chemotherapy options/help

Thank you CRguy your post was very helpful! I have been doing a lot of research on the added boost and percentage it has. Like Deb said, I just want to throw everything at this cancer, but I also don't want him to have these horrible side effect nor the permanent neuropathy, that would prevent him f...
