I was CT scanned before surgery. The report mentioned enlarged lymph nodes around the tumor. I didn’t have chemo or radiation before surgery. Post-op pathology report said all 16 lymph nodes were negative. However my tumor grew through the colon wall, made a large deposit into my peritoneal wall and...

Re: Anyone with peri mets who survived?

I was considering HIPEC (Dr. Sugarbaker in Washington Cancer center- Washington DC). He was an older gentleman. I don’t know if he is still practicing. Are you in the US? There are several surgeons that do HIPEC here. There is one in Omaha, Nebraska, he is highly selective . You have to be in good p...

Re: Any Stage IV currently in NEDville? Please share any advice or tips? P

I feel like I can give up meat anytime but alcohol is a different story... I love to have a drink (beer mostly) Friday night. The reason I gave up resveratrol and turmeric is because I started bruising easily. Especially if I take aspirin on top of that... Aspirin alone (baby aspirin) didn’t cause e...

Re: Any Stage IV currently in NEDville? Please share any advice or tips? P

I was diagnosed in December 2008 (stage iv colon cancer, mets to omentum). Had my surgery in January 2009 (regular right colectomy, not HIPEC). I went through 6 month chemo, was done with it in July 2009. I was actually a bit crazy at that time. I decided not to eat meat anymore (and I didn’t for ab...

Re: Next generation pdt

I have some knowledge of pdt (photodynamic therapy). I worked with different photosensitizers in the lab with cell cultures here in the US and in one French cancer center. One of the major problems with photosensitizers is that they do not have preferential accumulation in tumors. It means that many...
