Re: SO .. what happens ?

Really? were going to bump the thread up now? I'm so sorry I brought I up, so wrong. I wasn't trying to use this as a tool. But the fact that it's now being seen that way is just.... Well.... Pathetic. It was just something I always found odd, how quickly we sweep them under the rug. And I did say &...

Re: VATS

Hey zig, get em out. I had two vats and it's about what your onc said, I did one night stays and a couple weeks chillin. Sleeping is probably the hardest, pull the ole pillow hug and you'll be fine. I had sbrt, eff that shite. And the biopsie won't be trusted and may do the seeding thing. Good luck

Re: Newly Diagnosed Rectal Cancer - starting radiation/chemo soon

Before I went through a month of radiation treatments, I would seriously look into the five day short course.(European protocol) my Stanford doc's recommended this so that's what I did. No side effects and only lost 1 week. Oh, and no chemo involved during that. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/artic...

Re: Lung met but no liver mets - is that possible?
