Re: Bloody noses

I had trouble also with nose bleeds. My Onc sent me to their ER to have the veins in my nose cauterized. They just used a swab with some kind of medicine on it and it didnt even hurt. But it worked.:)

Re: For those with neuropathy, what shoes do you wear?

My feet are terrible after the 5fu. I had the Oxi also. I can not go barefoot since my feet are numb(also tingle,burn and sometimes sharp pain) but also hypersensitive to pain. If I step on even something as small as a grain of rice, I go through pain as if it were a tack. Anyway, I have a couple of...

Re: Couldn't complete colonoscopy

Hello Grandma3. I know you are worried. But wait until all the testing is done. Sometimes it is nothing. BUT if it is, this is the place to be as you go on your journey. There are so many nice people who can answer questions and give you support. God bless.

Re: Question for caregivers please extreme fatigue

I do know that extreme stress can have an effect on the body. I would have your Dr. check your blood counts just to be sure. You might not be eating to well. Good luck

Re: Stage 3 Colon cancer stories

I just had my three year CT scan and it is still clear. Blood tests are good and after my next colonoscopy in April I will not have to go back for a couple to three years. As you can see below, I was stage three also, had about 20 nodes removed and I believe about 6 had cells in them. Good luck to y...
