Re: Stage II2b - T4 - need help

Stage II is such a gray area. IF I understand correctly, stage II2b would require chemo, butt in an 80 year old man, traditional chemo regiment might be overkill. Maybe look into "light" chemo. Either 5FU or the pills form of it. Maybe a 2nd opinion at a major cancer treatment center might...

Re: Is it possible for a rectal polyp to grow to 10cm aggressive T4 advanced tumour in 3 years?

This just popped into my head. Check and see if there are any medical compliant against that doctor who did the scope back in 2011.

Re: Is it possible for a rectal polyp to grow to 10cm aggressive T4 advanced tumour in 3 years?

Lee mentioned that he could not believe that a reputable surgeon would leave polyps but many did. Some only took biopsy if they looked odd?? I know of no reason why any good doctor would leave any polyp behind. You don't wait until the polyp turns cancerous to remove it. If you can get copies of al...

Re: Is it possible for a rectal polyp to grow to 10cm aggressive T4 advanced tumour in 3 years?

After the procedure, my consultant visited and confirmed all was ok. He highlighted signs of diverticulitis but did not require treatment. He also mentioned a small cluster of [I'm sure he said polyps] about a cm or so in size but there was nothing to be concerned about but it would be advised to c...

Re: Salami

I'm gonna throw my 2 cents into this thread. I'm from Montana, cattle and wheat country. I know too many ranchers who raised and ate cattle all there lives and lived to a ripe old age. One gentlemen I know, lived to 96, he died a few years ago. Colonoscopies are a more recent procedure. I'm not if h...

Re: Femoral and inguinal hernia

Lee, I have never heard of walking as being identified as contributing to parastomal or incisional hernias. Being upright and standing does contribute to the outward abdominal pressure gradient simply by virtue of the effects of gravity and the weight of abdominal organs and fat/adipose tissue. But...

Smh. :( Generally it is rare for people your age to get colon cancer. Yes it can happen butt it tends to be very rare. Generally when it does happen, it's becaus...

Re: Femoral and inguinal hernia

Not sure why either, butt to be honest, I did not need a CT or MRI to find my hernia. I have a permanent colostomy and over the years the hernia got more pronounced (bigger). About 3+ years ago I had a temporary repair, I went down 2 dress sizes. At some point, I will have my colostomy replaced on t...

Re: Proton Therapy for lung and Liver Mets

. . . I have only had Proton Therapy and the Colon Surgery. It has been almost 3 1/2 years, and I still feel good, play with the grandchildren in the pool, and live a normal life. The local Doctors in Macon had never heard of Proton Therapy, even though Loma Linda treated the first Proton patient i...

Re: CBD oil and IBS

Sorry no one has responded yet. I don't really have an answer, butt I would say give it a try. Don't see where it would hurt and it just might help.

Good luck and let us know.
