Hi Skifletch
Good to hear from you and thanks for posting. You, along with Brownbagger, were sources of hope and inspiration when I needed it the most.
Appreciate you coming back on to continue to give hope.
Cheers dude.

Re: More chemo after a solitary lung met?

I think the question is more why did you have a recurrence? If it is due to some cancer cells that seeded in your and started a slow growing lung met then chemo is probably not going to assist a lot as the VATS would have dealt with the cancer. Are they any more cancer cells floating that could also...

Re: Thoughts on Stage IV...

I took the view early on that it was all or nothing. 100% or 0%, or as CR Guys puts in N=1. You can do things to make yourself feel better about it, but you can't really do anything to change the outcome. You can only change how you deal with that and I tried to live my life with as much fun as I co...

Re: O/T : I wish Brownbagger were here

Simply put, his presence here is sorely missed. He left an indelible mark on those that came into contact with him, including me, and I wish he was still around.

Re: Chemo has caught up to me yall

Hi Amy, I remember that on FOLFOX round 7 really started to hit me. I felt the lowest at that point, I started to loose sensation badly due to the neuropahthy, I couldn't run as I was so tired, I got a really bad case of GI issues and had diarrhea, which turned into vomiting and I vomitted for 2 day...

Re: Another 6 months

Awesome, ain't it good to be told that you are NED for another 6 months as a stage IV patient? I was told I was boring by my oncologist which made me extremely happy. and I am waiting for you to get to the "see you in a year stage" mate

Re: SNOW DAY - in the SEATTLE area!

I just checked... it's currently 79F. :shock: This coming Sunday is my half marathon, high is supposed to be 49 with rain. :roll: 49 is good, that will keep you cool, so if you push yourself you don't need to worry about any heat. Rain, um, I actually like running in the rain, but it can get annoyi...

Re: Any younger men post rectal surgery?

I'd just think of the bigger picture. It would be nice to have a great libido, but hard to use it if you are not able to address the cancer. Stage I sounds great, but what about the cancer in your transverse. Deal with that as you are. I had a LAR in Jan 2012 and then VATS (lung resection) in FEB 20...

Peanut, I think I posted in another thread but I moved recently (that has been a positive and negative experience in itself which I should start another thread on). However we went from a 2 bedroom apartment (about 970 square feet) to a 3 bedroom house (about 2050 square feet). He has his own room w...
