Re: Made it almost 2 years, now it’s back. Any MD Anderson advice?

Look into if MD Anderson does the HAI pump. if you are willing to go to NYC, Dr. Kemeny at MSKCC does the HAI pump- she pioneered it. I thank her for saving my mom's life. My mom started out in May 2011 with one liver tumor and after the HAI pump, a few remissions she is in her longest remission. Sh...

Re: So scared I cant stop crying

Happy New Year- Update on mom- clean

Hi all. Happy New Year. Just a quick update. Mom's ct scan was clean. We got the results today. That makes it about 3 years, 3 months clean. As many of you probably remember, she went back and forth quite a bit with clean scans and relapses before getting to this wonderful long stretch. Diagnosed Ma...

My children never had her (my youngest is first grade) but she was a huge part of the school and community. Amazing lady. Taught up to two weeks before the end of her journey. Tomorrow mornin...

Call their main number today and they can tell you how to send your records for Dr K to review. Dr. K has to review if you are a candid...

Re: How young is too young for COLONOSCOPY

I am like you with my kids health. I don’t think it’s too young for a colonoscopy. That said- and you may think I’m crazy- have her eat those Cheetos again. Then check her poop. She may react differently than you. If it is red again, I wouldn’t worry. If it’s not, do the colonoscopy and put your min...

Re: Hospitals that install HAI pump?

My mother has the old pump. Yes, msk is now doing Medtronic. I do know that it needs to be serviced more often than what my mom has but it works. It still gets FUDR into the liver.
