Re: Review of my Journey so far -> ⓊⓟⒹⒶⓉⒺ June 26/2019

I have just spent two days in hospital, I have been under the control of a senior cardiologist for over four years. I remember an onc...

Re: I think I broke my gallbladder...

Hi Amy, From my experience colorectal chemo therapy seem to go hand in hand with gall bladder problems. I have never been a good subject for ultrasound ( built like a brick toilet) . I was checked several time in the years following my cancer treatment with no positive results . Then a little black ...

Re: 13 years ago today!

Wishing you many many more years to come. Hugs and best wishes for a cancer free future. Ron. Ps My surgeon told me my cancer would definitely kill me within three years.

No sign of any polyps , no diverticulitis and no colitis. Next scope in three years. I'm out to twenty one and a half years ex st...

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...

Re: Large polyp removed

Hi Julie , I was diagnosed with stage 3c colon over 21 years ago. Since then I have had around 14 follow up scopes with at least half of them producing polyps. 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...

Hi Del, I am a survivor of stage 3c colon cancer. This Jan I reached year 21. I have had around 14 scopes over that period and have had polyps remove during half of them. 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.
