Re: Stupid Q of the Day: How do I know it's really cancer?

How do I know the tumor is cancerous? Are doctors just making observations to determine cancer at this juncture? Do I call the doctor who did the colonoscopy? I'm not even sure that doctor took a specimen. Cynthia These folks have been through medical school. They generally know cancer when they se...

Re: Any Stage IV currently in NEDville? Please share any advice or tips? P

I'm bumping this thread back up to the top. KNOW there are many people out there who are stage IV survivors (many in NEDville). They just do not check in as often. If you do a search, you will find other threads asking the same question. Know that it is possible to beat this cancer and MANY stage I...

Re: Liver has been chopped!!

Keep up the awesome job. While I did not have my liver removed, following my surgery to remove my tumor, I could no feel things as well (bladder wise) as I did prior to surgery, I remember going to the bathroom every few hours weather I needed to or not. I would even get up during the night just to ...

Re: Diagnosed while working abroad

Jts, I like Lee’s advice about finding a board certified Colon Rectal surgeon. I wouldn’t have thought about that on my own. My main feel is to get the tumor out. I want it gone yesterday. . . . . This site seems valuable for people like us just starting out on this frightening journey, and I’ll be...

Re: Can we please talk about colostomies/ileostomies?

Hello, everyone. I'm reading about these things in a lot of peoples' signatures. Can you please tell me, if you had one, whether it was temporary or permanent, and if it had to be permanent, then why? I'm so sorry for asking personal questions; I'm just scared and want to be prepared in case I need...

Re: Take me away to that special place - Picture Thread

Lee, I downloaded your trial pic to my laptop and from there onto Imgur. I then tried a preview here, and had no trouble, so I don't think you have a size issue. Are you seeing the page on Imgur where it says at the top 'view and edit' (in a blue box)? If so, you copy the BBCode and then paste onto...
