Re: Found mass at husbands first colonoscopy today

Thank you all for the welcome. Still waiting to get a scan scheduled, that is going to be my biggest issue, i am a control freak and I want this done Yesterday! It seems that having the mass lower is not really a good thing, am I correct in that? Colon cancer seems a bit easier to treat than rectal...

Re: RESTRICTIONS ON IMMODIUM SALE

The N.Y.Times had an article that I recently read indicating that the FDA is considering restrictions on Immodium. The reason is that addicts may use this drug when their preferred illegal opiate drug (heroin, etc.) is not available. This is a HORRIBLE idea for patients that depend on Immodium to c...

At first when I came here you were a regular poster with a quirky wit.

I also thought you had the coolest name on here just in case you cared.

Re: We Need Some Laughs Here: Reloaded 2018

A young engineer was leaving the office at 5:45 p.m. when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand. "Listen," said the CEO, "this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary is not here. Can you make this thing work?" &q...

Re: Surviving radiation for rectal cancer

The chemo is hard on the bottom. I had a blockage 4 weeks after resection and had to have surgery to remove scar tissue. My surgeon decided to reverse my ileo while he was in there. I was happy for the reversal but it made it much harder during chemo. Had alot of diarrhea. Same happened to me 3 wee...

Re: Bev G

Bev has been on my heart and in my head for a few months. Last time we 'talked' she had been deathly ill from kidney concerns from her diabetes. I think she said Diabetic Ketoacidosis. It had nothing to do with her cancer CURE. She would want you to know that her regular testing showed her still ca...

Re: Can benign lung nodules shrink?

I have had a lung nodule all throughout my cancer journey, it never picked up any uptake on a Pet Scan. I still have it, and monitor on a occasion with an X-ray. It's still the same size. Many hospitals, are prone to give repetitive CT scans, to scare the cancer patient for 5 or more years. If you a...

Re: Surviving radiation for rectal cancer

The radiation does most of the work but studies have shown that when chemo is added to radiation it increases the likelihood that the radiation will be more successful. Act...

Re: Is it odd? (DH chemo pump)

Yes - I remember the day my wife had her disconnect from her first round of chemo. She had been starting to train for running again, and wanted to go for a run. I am not a runner but went with her and walked the trials, and afterwards we decided to stop at Mr Frosty's for ice cream. She got an ice ...
