Re: Hi - looking for advice re possible bowel cancer

Hi, I'm still really struggling with the shortness of breath - to the point at times I feel like I'm going to pass out with not being able to get a breath. I've borrowed an inhaler from my dad which helps. I'm not sure if this is linked to my bowel issues or to my chronic hives. I feel like my stom...

Cleveland Clinic would be a great place to get that 2nd opinion.

Good luck,

Re: Please! Read me...

Get a 2nd opinion at a major cancer treatment center or major cancer hospital. There are many people on this board who also had liver mets and are very much NED (No Evidence Detected) today. Here is one person who's DH had liver mets and is NED today http://coloncancersupport.colonclub.com/viewtopic...

Re: New cancer diagnosis. Ugh!!

Hik What questions should I be asking?? Thanks for your help. Ask this surgeon how many of these surgeries s/he does on a yearly bases. Yes board certified colon rectal surgeon is the based. Since it does not sound like rectal (vs colon), sometimes a general surgeon can do the job especially if the...

Re: How can I help my family watch me die?

. . . . Oh how I wish I could just pass away peacefully tonight in my sleep!!! Why can't euthanasia be a legal option? I'd so much rather take it than allow my loved ones to suffer needlessly, with no hope. I If you are in the USA, I believe there are 3 states that support "assistant death&quo...

Re: How can I help my family watch me die?

I am so sorry to read this, I understand where you are coming from (I read your other thread), just so sorry to read this. Did you get a 2nd opinion? If you are with Hospice, they should have service that will help you and your family come to terms with what is about to happen. Hugs to you and your ...

Re: Xeloda, Avastin, post nasal drip and a cough

Not any real advice other than to follow up with you Onc. Could be nothing, butt a friend of mine came back from Israel, few days later ended up in the ER with breathing problems. Learned she had pneumonia. They believe she probably got the flu on the plane ride going home and then it turned into pn...

Re: Two Precancerous polyps at age 28

Being overweight supposely can contribute to this disease. Butt it does seems like colon cancer runs in your family. If you are concerned about Lynch, by all means get tested. For what it's worth, I was diagnosed at age 46, no family history, and not overweight. My brother has always been clean. His...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

. . . I'm disappointed as I'm rather in a hurry to get rid of the bag and port. This would put surgery somewhere around October. . . I can understand the stoma, butt are they going to take both the bag and the port out at the same time? This was a long time ago (14 yrs ago), butt i had to wait 2 yr...

I had VERY gradual loss until that last infusion, I was losing my hearing while sitting in the chair. Thus the Dr to Dr referral.

My understanding, this is a rarer side effect.
