Re: APR surgery for low rectal tumor

My Pete had VLR Tumor 11/11. We had 4 opinions. 2 said 80/20 we can save the sphincters, one said 50/50 and said APR. We went with one fantastic, ace-surgeon who spent almost 4 hours hand-sewing the connection since a stapler would not have worked. My hero. Pete is doing great.....so anyone who has...

Re: Back after almost 10 years NED - Ascites, Peri & Liver Mets!

I have a similar problem, and hope things go well. I did have 16 rounds of chemo after surgery. I'm 63 now. I won't go through chemo again , or radiation. I decided I didn't want to waste time and money on things that would restrict my life, that would end up with the same outcome, and not leave a p...

Re: Reversal Log: Experience,Problems, Q & A's

Another trivial question???????? So I do think the reversal log is a great idea,,,, Any pictullar type of incontinence underwear I should get,,, don't want to get 10 different varieties, before I get the right one, Obviously people may have different preferences but I'm sure there may be a common o...

Re: Reversal Log: Experience,Problems, Q & A's

All the organs of the body were having a meeting, trying to decide who was in charge. The brain said: "I should be in charge, because I run all the body's systems, so without me nothing would happen." "I should be in charge," said the heart, "because I pump the blood and ci...

Re: Is a ileostomy reversal worth it for a 60 year old guy?

It's simple for me, I had 3 cm left, and my sphincters, For the last 7 years, I completed my job assignments, by waiting for lunch at 11 AM, no breakfast. My hours were 6AM until 2 PM. If I ate, the deluge would come . I'm retired now, and 7 years older !

Bro Nut

Re: Preparing a facts & to-do-list for "newcomers"?

You are a new person to the forum. To do list, listen to your health care provider, stay off google !I had a rectal and colon tumor, so I guess that's a plural. I went through FOLFOX, and radiation. It can be accomplished ! 7 years NED !

Re: What Week Of Chemo/Radiation Do The Symptoms Start Getting Worse?

You are lucky, I was told 25, and then was told 3 more and you're done . I had low rectum rad . I also had a tumor in my sigmoid, that caused me to do FOLFOX, during radiation .

Re: What Week Of Chemo/Radiation Do The Symptoms Start Getting Worse?

Final treatment as in before the 3 bumps ? The last 3 treatments target the tumor directly, while the previous have circled the area involved. Once the tumor breaks up, it can feel unlike anything you might have experienced .
