Re: 6 months of symptoms - colonoscopy results

Thank you, Lee. This was a little shock today, with no family history of the same. I’m 31 and now suddenly I feel like I’m going to be constantly on edge for the rest of my life, wondering what’s growing in me, if it turns out to be precancerous. Or worse, what if the report comes back and says the...

Re: 6 months of symptoms - colonoscopy results

[quote="StillAnxious"] So now I wait. I didn’t realize inflammation could be precancerous. And can polyps be cancerous? I was hoping this exam would be a relief but now I’m just left with more questions. [quote] Inflammation can lead to cancer. Yes a polyp can be precancerous. These doctor...

Re: Scared of having colon cancer

If you were scoped 6 months ago, your chances of having rectal/ colon cancer is nil to none. A polyp generally take 10 yrs to turn cancerous. Keep a food journal and see if there is a connection between foods and how it might effect you. Example for me, I love my greens, butt those greens especially...

Re: New ileostomy

Re: Cannot decide whether to do targeted therapy are not

If you are able to travel, yes you might want to check it out now as a possible back up plan. If the chemo proves to not be working, yes do consider it. OR . . . Here is a thread you might want to read. "TIL Imunotherapy at NCI" http://coloncancersupport.colonclub.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&...

Re: Just got real, y'all

Ditto to Justin Case.

I would always get an egg cheese breakfast sandwich on the ways to chemo.

Can you get something to help with your hot flashes. Funny I did not get hot flashes until AFTER I finished chemo. Chemo nurse told me this can happen.

good luck,

Re: Post Surgery Help and CEA

MY CEA bounces around. It can go from 2.5 to 3.5 then back down to 3.2, etc.

What they are looking for is an upward trend over a few CEA test results

I met with the GI doctor yesterday to discuss my results and he isn't convinced that it's my gallbladder at all. He threw out the word "cancer" and I've been freaking out ever since. The doctor seems pretty concerned and recommended an EGD and colonoscopy. He said colon cancer is a possib...

Believe me we have all walked in yours and your husband's shoes. Know you are NOT alone here! First you need to dete...

Re: doctor in Cincinnati

Hi and welcome, sorry for the reason you are here. Look for cancer treatment centers or major cancer hospitals. I would also recommend looking for a "board certified" colon rectal surgeon vs a general surgeon. They have the extra training for these types of surgeries. Know that colon cance...
