Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

Shana, to post a pic, you need to host the photo on a site like Imgur. From Imgur, you copy the BBCode, and past it here. Voila!! And confidentially, BS, I think you may be right, the apple is actually an asian pear. :oops: :oops: :oops: Don't know how that happened since we weren't supposed to get...

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 chemo is reduced because it would be difficult for patients to tolerate both at the same time. Hence the chemo is lighter. 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 ...

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...

He will remove part rectum part colon. He said it is very high up and even tho it’s being referred to as rectal cancer, ...

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.
