Re: Black Panther Actor Dead at 43

I was shocked when I read about it also. I hate that CC has affected so many younger people, something many of us on here know something about. Condolences to his family.

Re: Strange question for the group

Hello everyone, It's been quite the strange year, not even counting the pandemic. I was diagnosed in January of this year, have gone through a couple surgeries (they got it and the pathology reports came back negative!!), 11 rounds of chemo (1 more left!!), and finally feel like I can see the finis...

Re: Prep for colonoscopy

I've been asking for years to be able to use the newer preps that don't require you to drink massive amounts of foul liquid. I keep getting the "GoLYTELY iS tHe BesT PreP" excuse.

Re: Personal question ... how do YOU do it?

I wish I had advice to give. It makes me angry that you're both having to go through this. The whole system is so screwed up.

Re: I stand up to use the word cure(d)....

Woo Hoo!!! Even by the 90's standards I can say I am officially cured!!! So I'm bumping this up - because someone pointed it out to me, reminding me the grief I used to take by some people on this forum. And that by their standards, I can say I'm cured!!! And I coulda said it by their standards - 6...

Ten years is a huge milestone. You deserve it.

That's great. Good luck with your treatment!

Re: Reducing Oxaliplatin

When I started getting neuropathy I immediately told my onc. He reduced my dosage and I didn't think about that as negative in any way. You doctor is the one that has studied the dosage and seen the effects of it over and over in other patients (along with the effectiveness at fighting the cancer). ...

Re: Just got diagnosed - advice appreciated

Thanks Michelle. Yeah, I think the last few days I’ve calmed down a bit in thinking I have to basically turn vegan if I want to live. Dr google was starting to stress me out. It wasn’t until I started reading people’s stories on this form that I started having hope that there is a fighting chance, ...

Re: For Stage III's: NED for how long now?

I’ve got my three year scans coming in early July. Haven’t thought about cancer too much in a while (a great thing) but you everyone here knows how scan time goes. I was diagnosed March 2017, had a path complete response, surgery, and my last all clear (blood and physical exam only) last December. ...

Re: New to the club we never wanted to join...

How much stock should I put in survival rates, given that they mostly refer to older patients and my husband is young and healthy? None! I caused myself so much anguish and worry when I was where he is at by looking at statistics. Like you said, the average age of getting CRC is much, much higher t...

Re: Anything to avoid or relieve first bite pain after FOLFOX ?

It could be completely a placebo but I got advice on here to swish apple juice in my mouth before eating. I remember I kept doing it. Here's the thread:

Re: Prep Question...

Haven't used Suprep but what you're doing is called a "split dose prep" and it's pretty common. It dies down after a few hours so I'm never up all night but it's still awful because they make me do the second dose at 2am. I don't get a lot of sleep that night.

Re: Diagnosed with colon cancer

The worst news I've ever heard this week is that I'm diagnosed with colon cancer. I got my biopsy results last week and the doctor said that I'm diagnosed with colon cancer. I'm just stunned that I've got this disease even after following a healthy style. I don't know what to expect after hearing t...
