Re: cancer on peritoneum

My only comment is that if you want a surgical opinion you should consult a surgeon, not a series of oncologists. Where I am, one can be referred to the tumor board, which includes surgeons, radiologists of various types, oncologists, et al. I completely agree with this, and even more so for perito...

Re: chemoradiation therapy for rectosigmoid

My tumour was also rectosigmoid. I was about 15 cm from anal verge, depending on who measured. I was also treated as rectal. If you had suspicious nodes, that could be why they wanted to hit you with chemoradiation before surgery. There’s a saying I like. I used to use it when it came to beers, but...

Re: chemoradiation therapy for rectosigmoid

I think JJH makes excellent points about the type of surgery being very important for future quality of life. I just want to throw one thing out there: laparoscopic surgery can sound awfully appealing in terms of quicker recovery and so on, but there is a lot to be said for open surgery with a good...

Re: chemoradiation therapy for rectosigmoid

... I have been reading a lot of literature on this subject and it seems that there are very few doctors who consider rectosigmoid cancer as rectal instead of the colon... Just a few more thoughts ... Although your tumor is technically in the colon area, to remove it they may need to make the lower...

Re: chemoradiation therapy for rectosigmoid

... I am worried about distant metastasis and I am wondering if I may have given cancer the chance to spread. ... Here are my thoughts: If the cancer did in fact spread during the 5-week CRT, it would be in the form of a circulating tumor cell or a micro-metastasis and would not show up on a scan a...

Re: Questions about post chemo-radiation stage

Welcome to the BEST forum nobody ever wants to HAVE to join !!! in a nutshell : The wait from cessation of CRT to surgery is to allow the latent effects of radiation to continue for a while … to continue to affect the tumor AND to allow the tissues time to normalize so that surgery will have a chan...

Hello folks, I was recently diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of rectosigmoid.
