Re: Appt with surgeon

He put me back together after APR surgery. He is still very involved with my recovery and extended my restrictions today for another 4 months. He thinks maybe I am at risk for a hernia (NOOOO, please NOOO). He reviews my scans and bloodwork.

Appt with surgeon

Had appt with plastic surgeon today. He has such a calming nature about him. He went over my ct scan with me from his point of view and also inflammation markers. He wants me to take 600-800mg Advil every 8 hrs as needed and touch base with him in 2 wks. Another reason I like him is he reminds me of...

Re: Update (9 months post surgery) (6 months post chemo)

I agree D3 is very important.
We have 3 supplements in common.
I do take a 81mg aspirin every night and melatonin.
Thank you for sharing!

Re: Update (9 months post surgery) (6 months post chemo)

Yes Yes Yes, what CRguy said!
Are you using a naturopath for your supplements/diet? If so, who and what supplements are you taking if you don't mind sharing?

Re: Interesting paper about fasting and vitamin C

Hi I Will Fight, I take IV C every week. It helps me feel better. I had two infusions before surgery then after surgery to help with wound healing and immune building. It was a lifesaver with getting me back on track without any after surgery complications. So, I still continue it once a week at 75 ...

Contacted Lexington Natural Health Center this morning and they emailed back to set up appt with them Monday. I am excited to get an opinion on cancer and chemo and wondering if anyone else ha...

Re: Girlfriend wants to come to appointments

I agree with zephyr. Last week at center a man and wife came in, both in masks. The man (patient) had oxygen with him. Receptionist informed them that it wasn't on file that he could have a visitor with him. His wife said "well he is so please update todays visit." The receptionist made a ...

Re: Numb and numberer

To relate? Yes, I am so glad to be done with oxaliplatin too!!! Just know neuropathy can take a while to clear your body. I think I had neuropathy in my face, hard to explain the numbness of it. I also couldn't write my name. It looked like I wrote it with my eyes shut, not even able to stay on the ...
