Re: Back after almost 10 years NED - Ascites, Peri & Liver Mets!

I am truly sorry to see you and your husband in the position you find yourselves. Sometimes life really is not fair. I have to wonder if the hit your husbands system, particularly his immune system, from his heart attack has given cancer a free reign. I was dxed stage 3c and my surgeon almost gave i...

My last one two years ago produced four polyps between four and eleven mm. The largest required three internal staples to control bleeding. ...

Re: Seeking advice of colorectal cancer Survivors

Hi Disissue, I was dxed with an aggressive stage3c into six nodes. Right from the start I chose to just do whatever the doctors told me to do and although I have issues from chemo at the time I made up my mind that there would be no regrets with whatever I chose to do. I had 48 sessions of chemo , e...

My last scope was nearly two years ago. They removed four tubular adenomas between 4 and 11 mm. They are not the easiest of polyp...

Happy birthday Molly and very happy anniversary for twenty years. Thanks to all the crew for their hard work. I have been very fortunate to survive for over twenty years as well. I suspect I have some idea of your inner feelings. Hugs Ron.

Re: Another anniversary

G'day Wayne, thanks mate . I'm 69 in a month and at the moment have no chance of giving up work. I bought a 4 meter kayak last year. It lets me sneak up on some nice fish but makes me forget that my body is too stuffed to sneak up on anything. I'm heading up to Miara on the Kolan river on Friday for...

Re: Stage 3c

Re: 3C Recently Diagnosed - need support

Hi Marshmallowjones, Welcome aboard. I was dxed with stage 3c colon cancer into 6 of 13 nodes when I was 48. It was very aggressive and my surgeon told me not to expect more than three years. I told him don't worry I don't die of cancer. I have no idea what will get me but it won't be cancer. I had ...
