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...

Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

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...

Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

Now that photo got my attention, pets. No one loves them more than the owner. Here is a photo of my cat doing what he does best and sleep. http://i64.tinypic.com/es530l.jpg I tend to think that whilst I don't post as much as I did, that when I posted I shared my life, what was happening, and tried t...

Re: Can you go on like normal

Hello Trying, You are in a challenging place. However how you handle that is totally up to you. I too struggled with similar emotions, which I found hard to process.

Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

I posted elsewhere to say that I moved from a unit (apartment) to a house recently, and it has been a slight adjustment from living in apartments for 20 odd years. There is a lot of outside work and maintenance, and lots of interaction with Mother nature. I recently came across 2 European Wasp nests...
