Re: Tiny amount of blood on stool

You do not have cancer. Not to be rude but every one of us who has had cancer would be very thankful to be in your shoes. Your tests have come out clear. Perhaps you should speak to someone about your anxiety.

We are not doctors. We are colon cancer survivors or loved ones of survivors. We cannot speculate on your situation. If you are concerned about your stools, you should see a doctor. Good luck.

Re: Question about necessity of CEA labwork

I don’t put a lot of stock in cea. I haven’t had one drawn in at least 5 years. My cea has never been elevated, even when I had a 10cm tumor. It seems pointless to me to do them as it has never been an indicator of cancer for me. That said, your fathers surgeon is a jackass. Sorry you have to deal w...

Re: Second primary cancer

Thanks everyone for replying! I'm sorry we're in the same boat. I do have a lot of cancer in my family. My dad had NSC lung and my mom had stage 2 breast cancer. I think there should be a one cancer per person maximum. A second early stage primary is better than a reoccurrence of the first cancer. ...

Re: Ileostomy?

There are going to be two incisions with this surgery no matter where the cancer is located. They will do one to remove the cancer and a second one to bring the small intestine to the surface and outside the body.

Re: Polyp at 35...

We are not doctors and it would be irresponsible for us to speculate on these questions. We just are not qualified to answer those questions. We are survivors or loved ones of survivors and it doesn’t make us experts in cancer. I would suggest laying off google while you wait to speak to your doctor...

Re: split prep question for scope ....

I have refused the split prep. I do the miralax prep the day before. I have to do a scope every year. The miralax is by far the easiest I’ve done and I refuse to do any other. No doctor has ever said my prep was a bad one. They send me a prescription for suprep in the mail and it goes right in the t...

Re: Can tumors bleed big amounts at a time?

I would advise laying off google. They didn’t miss a tumor when they did the colonoscopy. Doesn’t mean you don’t have a problem, but it’s not colon cancer. You might consider talking to your doctor about your anxiety. Best of luck.

Re: How Much Did You Sleep After Chemo? Chemo experiences :)

I would get chemo on Wednesday’s. I felt good on Wednesday and Thursday because of all the steroids they gave me. I pretty much slept from Friday afternoon until Monday morning. Chemo is very hard on the body. I would sleep 10 hours, and be exhausted after being awake an hour and sleep like 6 more h...
