Re: How crucial is the HAI pump?

The HAI protocol is a combination of chemo directly injected into the pump which then goes straight to your liver and systemic chemotherapy delivered by traditional methods, usually a port in your chest. I don’t believe they’ll do colon surgery while you’re on HAI, they’d prefer to have any other tu...

Re: How crucial is the HAI pump?

The pump has been shown to be very effective at shrinking liver tumors and allow patients to get to resection and also to keep tumors from coming back after liver resection. I strongly suggest, if you haven’t already, to make an appointment at MSKCC, you need the best people taking care of you.

Re: CEA and it’s anxiety

CEA anxiety is one of our favorite subjects here, and it sucks! I’m one of those whose CEA level creeps up on occasion. But it seems that there very high false-positives with some of us, almost up to 50%, and in some people 15 is the high normal, not 5! Of course it’s still important to keep an eye ...

Reminder: Don't forget your Vitamin D!

All the latest studies point to pretty good proof that Vit D is important and helps keep the beast at bay: https://www.yalemedicine.org/stories/vitamin-d-colorectal-cancer/ "A group of 139 patients with metastatic colorectal cancer were prescribed standard chemotherapy and vitamin D supplements...

Re: Opinions on alternative treatments?

I find the outright dismissals of non-standard cancer interventions disappointing. She’s obviously under the care of a properly trained and licensed professional and it’s just asking for some advice on some alternatives. And what is this nonsense about “western medicine”?? Ancient Chinese and indige...

Do the port, otherwise you'll be in a world of unnecessary pain!

Re: HELP. Mother’s treatment wrong?

Looks to me like she’s getting standard care. I’d wait for the results of the pathology where her stage will be confirmed. I’m certain that an oncologist will be involved at some point. Please be patient and don’t listen to too much outside noise. And, listen to what she wants done.

Re: Need Support - Told today I'm on Palliative Care

Don't give up! I know, it's easy to just say that, but, there have been many people who have been told that surgery is out of the question, and have become candidates. Not all doctors/surgeons have the same skill and confidence, sometimes it's a matter of looking a little harder. Sounds to me that c...
