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 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...
