Re: Recurrence questions

I lost 4 pounds this month and am retired. Perhaps it's the heat and going back to work stress. Also some of the effects of chemo can cause a loss of taste .

Re: Cancer and coffee????

I always took a mug of coffee with me to infusions. It took a year after chemo before I could tolerate milk. It gave me incontinence.

To alleviate or confirm your fears, you might get a PET scan.

Re: Questions regarding Folfox treatments

I didn't experience too many side effects. I did lose 30 pounds do to lack of taste recognition. I asked about the beer and was surprised with the response. "Why not you're on chemo it wont hurt a thing and might make you more comfortable "

Re: Multiple tiny mets on lungs—-need knowledge.

Have you done a PET scan to make sure your mets are actually cancer ? It could be COPD and your barking up the wrong tree.

Re: Stupid Q of the Day: How do I know it's really cancer?

How do I know the tumor is cancerous? Are doctors just making observations to determine cancer at this juncture? Do I call the doctor who did the colonoscopy? I'm not even sure that doctor took a specimen. Cynthia These folks have been through medical school. They generally know cancer when they se...

Re: Stupid Q of the Day: How do I know it's really cancer?
