Re: Stage 4 to NED- Please tell us

I have been on this board for over 5 years now and I have seen a lot of people come and go. I have seen a number who's situation looked dire go on to be NED from stage IV. There is no telling what may, or may not happen. It is obviously extremely hard to face a stage IV diagnosis, and there is the n...

Re: Robino1 has left us today at 6:40pm.

That is really sad. She was always a really positive influence, no matter what issues she faced herself.

Re: Stage 4 Hope

Hi Stu
Good to see the photo of your Mum and glad she is doing so well. May she continue to be a beacon of hope to you, and to others, including myself on this board.

Re: Bev G

Wow, that comes as a bit of a shock. She was always so positive and helpful. I noted that she had been quieter on the boards than in the past and I put that down to the loss of Gwen and some of the other genuine friends that she made on this board. Colon Talk will be a sadder place without her mothe...

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

...I see my oncologist in about 1 month which will be my five year mark, and if he calls me a cancer survivor I will feel a lot better as he is super conservative. Hi kiwiinoz It's good to see you on-line again. Do you have any up-to-date photos of your collection of running shoes -- including thos...

Re: Hello from a new member

Jannine, Give Nuun a go, it is not a "sports drink" as such as it is not full of sugar. It is an electrolyte replacement tablet you put in water to dissolve and drink. An ex member (Brownbagger) who was an avid long distance cyclist put me on to them and I use them a lot now with running. ...

Re: Hello from a new member

Hi Jannine Loosing weight was something I had to worry about too and my biggest way of keeping on top of the nausea was talking anti nausea tablets as soon as any symptoms started. I tried to keep my fluids up as much as I could and I also found that if I kept taking electrolyte supplements I was ah...

Re: Avastin in UK's NHS vs. USA Healthcare

Interesting Article and I still don't get the whole insurance thing in the US. Seems to put people in a position where those that have jobs are forced to decide the level of insurance coverage that you want to pay for. In Australia where I was diagnosed and treated I paid for my treatment. Colon res...

Re: New here My son has colon cancer

I was 39 when I was diagnosed and my family had just lost my Father to cancer just over 1 year prior. I ran, and still do, my own business with about 13 staff at that time. My view on this, is totally based on my own family, is that my Mother was struggling with her own issues, and nobody in my fami...

However I have 16 weeks until a Marathon I want to in so have started training again. Did a tempo run yesterday and really enjoyed it ...

Re: What's In a Name

Mark Interesting subject and sounds like you are in a place that many of us have been in. A dark place, where all hope seems gone, and nobody, apart perhaps from the people on this forum can understand you. When I was diagnosed I went from "you have cancer", to "you have stage IV canc...

I was very saddened to hear this. She fought a good fight, and seems like she beat it to be blindsided by complications.

Re: Reoccuring Digestive issues

Hey Joe, Just like Laura suggests it sounds possibly like adhesions or something causing a blockage. I have had 5 years of similar issues, although not quite as severe. Scans don't really show adhesions, and every time I had a scan I would simply be told I had severe fecal impaction. He could try a ...
