Re: Reversal

Good luck with the reversal! Be sure to have some diapers and calmoseptine ointment on hand just in case. Heard my name mentioned ! I had the BAG for 3 weeks, it was the worst of all the treatments for me . Seriuosly, it will be a trip without it, but I really hated that thing. Look on the bright s...

Re: radiation therapy & bleeding

The reason for radiation is to break up the tumor. I was bleeding a little before diagnosis, so looking at blood saved my life . I was told there would be 25 days of radiation, and when I reached that point, I received the bump . The last 3 treatments target the tumor directly, and that is when you ...

Re: Peritoneal CA secondary to Colon CA

No port is usually pretty difficult for oxi- over just a few times bare, or else some aggravation with a Picc line installed in the arm for a while. A few have done okay for longer stretches with oxi- but most going bare stop sooner than later. Otherwise, without a port, your bff might go mostly wi...

Re: O/T diversion ... The Voice Spring 2018 !!!!!!!

Kelly's 1st whack @ being a judge. She might settle down a bit as others have. :) This may be controversial, but I tend to call it as I see it. So I'm going THERE now. The one gal singing country got no turns to which Blake criticizes her "diction". Fair enough. I don't disagree, however ...

Re: All Lung Nodule Experiences

Thats exactly what I am doing. I asked why the need for another full scan and she said no reason I do the same with everyone. I still might go ahead and get the scan but I just want a few other opinions before I go in for another full CT. It just makes it stressful when communication is poor betwee...

Re: Can't believe it's been 4 years

Four years ago today I was two days post op from LAR open surgery. My gut looked like the zipper of my hockey bag, I had a temp ileostomy that just kept filling with nasty green stuff. I had not eaten for three days and would go another five without food. Jello is not food. In three days I would be...

Hey Bro Nut...Would be surprised if Garth Brooks ever got poor reviews! :) They booked Garth to open the show, and close the show. With good fortune I am still working , partially from a lot of good advice on this forum. I just turned 62,didn't think I'd make it that far. Unfortunately, Garth plays...

Re: All Lung Nodule Experiences

I have been a smoker for 49 years, I have a 4 mm nodule. It has been there throughout my cancer travel . It never picked up a hit on the Pet Scans, although it does show up on CT's. It also shows up on X-rays, so's I get the X-ray instead of CT's as it cost way less. There has been no new growth, in...

Blake Shelton just played The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, He got terrible reviews , although Garth Brooks, who opened and will close the 2 week season, was rated well ! I also like Alicia on the show, not so fond of that other lady .
