Re: Results of PET scan and questions about the liver!

I'm sorry to hear about the stage IV diagnosis. It is far more likely that the PET scan picked up what the other scans did not (rather than rapid growth). I am a PET scan believer as my mets were only diagnosed via PET. Being confirmed as stage IV means that he will get the most aggressive treatmen...

Re: Stage 2/3 Rectal Cancer Scan Question/Results

Hello Mike, . . . he said that he could order scans but that it could potentially delay the surgery if something were found. . . michael (in NH) Okay, I see that procedures are changing. When I was diagnosed, I was scanned at diagnoses. Did radiation and was scanned again just prior to surgery. Sta...

Re: Foot pain

Neuropathy is what I am thinking too. She did not do chemo? Is she a diabetic?

Good luck,

Re: Testing on Tuesday

What you are feeling is normal. It's a scary time prior to testing. We are dealing with cancer here, not the common cold. As others have said, just try an stay positive until you learn otherwise. When I was going through treatment, I kept telling myself as long as I was learning something new each d...

Re: Stage 2/3 Rectal Cancer Scan Question/Results

Hi Mike and welcome. Sorry for the reason you are here. I'm a bit confused. How many scans has your mother had? One or more? Or are they comparing it to a scan prior to her diagnoses? I had a CAT scan just prior to my surgery, I believe that is normal procedure so am a bit confused with her Dr. sayi...

Re: Nails issues after chemo

I never had any real nail issues until about a few years ago. I used to have strong nails, butt now are weaker. I blame this on menopause. Have been told it can happen.

Hi all, I wish I wasn’t meeting you all under these circumstances but here we are....

Re: Inconclusive Biopsy

My most recent scan showed a growing nodule indicative of lung mets. However, my biopsy came back negative... the surgeon and oncologist agree that we should move forward with a lobectomy given my history and how the nodule presents (I also had a 1 point jump in CEA from 1.5 to 2.5). Hi and welcome...

Thank God I did bleed so much because it was the only thing that made me think something was wrong. I tell you that I am going to ask every single person I meet 40 ...
