Re: Zantac and Colon Cancer

I find this discussion most interesting but also quite frightening in equal measures . I had never imagined it was outsourced , but I guess it makes sense and it is also not a big leap to think of shortcuts being taken ! Yikes .

Re: Suggestions on where to go and what to do next

It might just be the push you need . Try BowelcancerUk . They have the most information on Hipec patients and I think some of the members there have a stage 4 Facebook page and share a lot of information that might be helpful to you . One thing I have learnt from reading is the centres of excellence...

Re: Suggestions on where to go and what to do next

Hi , I will start of with my disclaimer here as I have no personal experience nor have researched into Hipec in any shape or form but on the UK forums there is a name that comes up of a surgeon in London who does the more extensive pelvic surgeries . I think it’s Jamie Murphy ! I will check it out ....

Re: Folfox (AGAIN) + Panatumumab

Hi Claudine ,

That’s great to hear . It’s such an interesting story as it gave her more insight into her work .
I think she heads up a neuroscience department !

I hope your husband is doing ok .

Re: Folfox (AGAIN) + Panatumumab

“The Neuroscientist Who Lost Her Mind”by Barbara K. Lipska No idea why I selected it for my summer reading but I was not aware at the time that I would understand so much of her journey . Worth a read . She also discussed dyslexia which my son has so was very interested in the Neuroscience behind th...

Re: Folfox (AGAIN) + Panatumumab

That’s very interesting. Whilst on holiday I read a book about a neuroscientist’s journey into insanity and her recovery . It turned out she had two cancer diagnosis. One primary breast which was treated with a mastectomy and the second a melanoma which had spread . She was about to start immunother...

Re: In need of metastasis education

I think your right about the margins . Once the tumour is removed they always referred to having good margins of cancer free tissue around the tumour . With the liver pre surgery they talked about getting good margins but interestingly enough mentioned that they only need a small margin with the liv...

Re: In need of metastasis education

I can’t answer too many either but it sounds as though you are having a great response to chemo . I think apart from the obvious reigning in of the primary tumour and spread by going straight to chemo also allows oncologists to see how your tumour responds . Why someone with the same cell type respo...

Re: Folfox (AGAIN) + Panatumumab

My views are there is nothing to be lost on returning to more standard treatment at this juncture as he seems to have positive results . However I hear what you are saying about the trial . I can understand an oncologist wanting to use a treatment that they are familiar with which has also done a go...
