Re: Bev G

Like many others who had a sense of dread in seeing the thread topic, so did I. It's frankly SHOCKING to hear of Bev's passing. She was one of the 'old guard'.....and sadly, there are few of us left. Bev and Ashley were dear friends and Bev took Ashley's passing hard (for the life of me I can't reme...

Re: Surviving radiation for rectal cancer

I only said that radiation kills (or at least it is supposed to) the cancer in the FIELD of the radiation. In other words, radiation is used to help sterilize the nodes around the rectum. It certainly would NOT have any effect on distant lymph nodes that were outside of the field of radiation. In ad...

Re: O/T - some Pics from my son's wedding

Thank you all for the wonderful compliments. The kids put this wedding on all by themselves (ok, we helped a little) but they really pulled off a beautiful day! I wish they hadn't spent so much money but....it's what they wanted and being that they're older (he's 33, she's 31), they were going to do...

Re: O/T - some Pics from my son's wedding

These are just a few that the photographer had on his blog. My son sent them to me. I am not in any of these... Thank you for all the lovely compliments. It really was a special day and the kids deserve all the credit. They paid for and put this entire wedding on themselves. I helped with some small...

O/T - some Pics from my son's wedding

I hope I can get these to post. We just got back from Philly ....from our second son's (#3 child) wedding and wanted to share some of their pictures. Wedding was outside...Bartram's Garden....TERRIBLY hot and muggy. Some of the pictures were taken in downtown Philly. https://hofferphotography.com/wp...

Re: Colon Cancer with mets to liver

One thing you may want to have your dad stop taking is the multivitamin. When a patient is on 5FU or Xeloda (FOL or XE in the FOLFOX or XELOX combos), the folic acid in the multivitamin is NOT a good thing to be taking. This is because the folic acid allows the 5FU or Xeloda to build up in the patie...

Re: O/T....anyone had hip bursitis and had cortisone shot?

My suggestion...have him take some Tylenol or Ibufrofen before he goes.
Tell us how it goes.

Re: O/T....anyone had hip bursitis and had cortisone shot?

If this is any help....I just bit the bullet and walked UP and DOWN the stairs to take out the dog. Now, that may not sound like a big deal but....for the past year, I have avoided the steps almost exclusively. Instead, I take the dog out through the garage where we have a ramp. Now, the other area ...

Re: O/T....anyone had hip bursitis and had cortisone shot?

My shot was given into the bursa...not the hip joint. I can't tell you if there is anything different. Today, I am feeling much better. IMO, if a few days of intense pain garners me a better result in the long run, I'm willing to take it. Each person, however, has to decide for themselves. If his ar...

Re: O/T....anyone had hip bursitis and had cortisone shot?

Talked with doc's office late yesterday....around 4:30ish I think. She said this is 'normal'....and yes, it might be a 'cortisone flare'. Apparently the 'burning' is common ...wish I had known first...still would have done it. Ice, rest, stay off stairs or other activities which would aggravate it. ...

Re: O/T....anyone had hip bursitis and had cortisone shot?

So this doc is a sports rehab/pain specialist and this is one of her specialties. My previous knee injections were not cortisone..they were either Hyalgen or Euflexxa (sp), so not the same. When this doctor did the bursa injection, she also put a tiny amount (at least that's what she said) into the ...

Re: O/T....anyone had hip bursitis and had cortisone shot?

Thanks for the info. I never had this burning pain before. Called the doc this morning....haven't heard back from them yet. I'm scheduled for another cortisone shot (after the wedding) in the ischial burse BUTT.....(literally) I'm not sure. IF this is what they call the 'cortisone flare'....I don't ...

O/T....anyone had hip bursitis and had cortisone shot?

O/T but need anyone's experiences, PLEASE! Quick recap.....back in 2012/2013, I was trying to stack some wood, put too much in the wheelbarrow, it tipped over and I fell....HARD on the concrete in our garage....on the right side of my tush/hip and then hit my head. I was in PAIN and went to the ER. ...

Re: Surviving radiation for rectal cancer

The FOLFOX likely was a weaker strength than when you had adjuvant chemo.
