Re: Stage IV 8 year cancerversary today AND clean scan

Thanks for all the kind thoughts! I can only hope at 72 I have as much energy as my mom. She spent the day yesterday and today cleaning up their property with my dad and my 13 year old son. She was dragging tree limbs. I get tired watching her- lol! Looking forward to seeing Pete and you all in Sept...

Stage IV 8 year cancerversary today AND clean scan

On May 13, 2011 mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. Today was her 8 year anniversary, and she had another clean scan. Great anniversary gift. This makes a bit over 3.5 years clean in her longest remission yet. She had remissions on and off but October 2015 we started having continuous clean scans...

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

I am glad you are getting a colonoscopy. That said if you have been constipated you could have an anal fissure- a tear- which can cause quite a bit of blood. Let us know how the colonoscopy turns out.

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...

We lost a second grade teacher- thoughts

We lost a beloved second grade teacher at our school this past week to colon cancer. She fought for 4 years. 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...

Re: HAI pump without Dr. K at MSK

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...
