Re: Never mind

Lee, you said that when you were diagnosed [2004] “ I believe this was before Dr. Kemeny and HAI pump,... ” I don’t know when it became a common treatment but this is an 1987 article (by Kemeny) with results of a HAI trial. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/2957943/ This article is including pa...

Re: Just can't let it go

If you are that concerned, gather all the reports, info, etc and get a 2nd opinion at a major cancer/research hospital. See what do they say, explain your concerns, etc.

I hope you get resolution,

Re: Never mind

Yes that’s the thread Lee. 236 pages! Not sure I understand what you mean by “ I always felt cancer was the elephant in the room that no one wanted to talk about. ” Must be a USA slang. When I was diagnosed, most stats at that time had me at about 30% (some at 50%) of being alive in 5 yrs. FOLFOX w...

Re: Describing LAR surgery

I had my rectum removed and was given a permanent colostomy. Curious, do you still have your rectal muscles? Mine were destroyed thanks to radiation, thus the bag.

Seasoned Pork Tenderloin This recipe says to cook in the oven (broiler), I generally use the out door grill. While the directions say to add ingredients into a plastic bag, I have better success adding the ingredients into a bowl or measure cup, then add to bag, then add tenderloins. I do the prep w...
