Nine Year Anniversary

Hello friends, I just saw my oncologist for the now annual exam and I’ve cleared the nine year mark since my Stage 4 dx. I wanted to send an optimistic message to all who are doubting the possibility for themselves. Exactly how or why I’m doing so well, I don’t know. I remain cautiously optimistic a...

Re: Prep suggestions?

Utwo, I can’t argue your research but a little Gatorade (or any flavored drink) goes a long way with me so drinking mostly Smart Water has allowed me to drink the necessary amount of liquid and then some. Gatorade only leads to some vomiting. If you like Gatorade, then that’s probably the way to go....

Re: Prep suggestions?

Miralax/Ducolax prep- instructions easily found on Internet. Rather than Gatorade, I drink Smart Water. Gummie bears (only the yellow and white) and broth get me through without hunger. Easing up on eating a few days ahead of the prep is helpful. I’ve had many scopes since 2010 dx (don’t even dread ...

Re: Lung specialist at MSK or MDA? Advice, please.

David R Jones MD, now at MSKCC, is the thoracic surgeon who performed my VATS (at a different cancer center) and a genius, in my opinion.

Re: Newly diagnosed stage 4 colon cancer at 42. Looking for hope and inspiration.

I’ve been NED since 11/11 and I received surgery (liver transplant surgeon) at UVA following a consult with Dr. Kemeny at Sloan.

Re: NED maybe. Stage 4, after 10 years Free. FOLFIRi?

Hate, hate, hate that you once again have to handle cancer. Your thought process regarding treatment sounds impressively calm and collected and I’m in awe. I have no real treatment guidance (xeloda was used for my lung lesion and that was in 2011) but am curious of any recurrence symptoms since I as...

Re: In canada MSK not option

Yes, there’s much hope!

I consulted with Dr Kemeny at MSK but ultimately did not choose HAI pump. Instead, I had surgery at another major cancer center in the US. I felt confident in the doctors I chose and have no regrets. NED since 2011.

Best to you,

Re: Second parent diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer

I am so sorry and angry. This is truly a nightmare and tragically unfair. My own diagnosis made way for my thirty-ish year old children to be scoped with the hope of catching any cancer early and sparing their lives. So WTF, how is it that this has happened to your mom? Going forward, I do hope you’...

Try Vitamin B6 and there are plenty of previous posts to search for more information. It worked for me.
