Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Made the absolute mistake of reading some reports on the cancer centers app. Though my ctscan of my chest was clear, it still notes some nodules but at .2 and .3 levels. Should I be worried??? I am alittle freaked out. But these days it happens easily and frequently. All through, Radiation, Chemo, ...

Re: O/T diversion ... The Voice Spring and FALL 2017 !

OK, Taken me awhile to get back here w/my take on things. Didn't realize Jennifer Hudson was a seasoned judge (The Voice-UK), so may explain her boisterous behavior. Anytime I've seen her perform on TV, she comes out sings, that's it. So was surprised by the antics, i.e., shoe/book throwing, large ...

Re: Reversal Journal -- just had the surgery this morning.

Latest update. Been pretty good. Flew to Pittsburgh to get my quarterly CT scans. Trip was uneventful with bowel issues. After I drank the stuff for the contrast I had some bowel issues for a little while that afternoon. I notice if I am forced to hold it for a good while, it seems to help. High Re...

Re: Reversal Thread

I had my temp for 3 weeks. Most people wait for 6 to 8 months, I also had a blockage so it was taken care of, along with reversal. From my side of the situation, you'll go through much of the same things either way. The good news, is that all this stuff has happened before the end of the year, and y...

Re: Has anyone heard of this

I believe The 12 Treatments of Oxi with FolFox is the old standard for adjuvant chemo after resection with curative intent, for stage 3's and resectable 4's. From speaking with my Onc It seems that if us stage 4's make it through 12 FolFox without progression (stability or reduction) there is no re...

Re: MDAnderson is taking patients again

I was responding well to chemo before this. Will this give the cancer a chance to regain strength? My understanding the basic stuff (5FU) will stay in your body for about 7-8 weeks. I believe you will be okay, sometimes there has been delays for many people for many different reasons and everything...

Re: MDAnderson is taking patients again

Irma is not coming anywhere near Texas. MDA is packed. I mean it's always packed but even more so today. But it us coming for my state. I'm on the east coast and it could be very bad for people even for locals getting chemo like me. The worst of it should be done by the time I need to go again in t...

MDAnderson is taking patients again

MD Anderson is taking patients, and has recruited 150 extra personnel to help catch up on treatments. That is the latest I have heard as of right now, 4PM in Houston .9/4/2017.
