Re: TMI Rant - for sensitive souls

I am further along than you. I have developed complications I find sitting to be much more uncomfortable than bed rest. I tend to agree, not having a rectum stresses radiated tissue. Good luck moving forward dear.

Re: Will I ever stop thinking about cancer?

I never stop thinking about it. It's very dependant on how you are feeling physically. And dependant on your individual story. cancer is a traumatic life event. I think it's totally normal to think about it often. Now dealing with the thoughts is a whole other thread.

Re: Another CRC Risk Factor that Doesn't Apply to Me

We don't know what cancer is. We don't know how to cure it. Ultimately it is down right silly to try and identify a risk factor for,cancer. We don't choose our hair color. We don't know why somoene slams home runs better than others, why Whitney Houston has an unforgettable singing talent. Cancer is...
