Re: The 10 most obese states in the U.S.

Hi , I have noticed people are being quickly closed down from discussing a healthy weight in the UK despite an upward trend . However our departing Chief Medical Officer has stated it’s a future issue that requires attention now to the point of proposing no eating on public transport ! The way I see...

Re: Rising CEA - What would you do?

Thinking of You Claudine. It’s so tough on you both . Swinging in one direction with good news then anxiety rising in another . Hopefully the scan will remain good . We had a scare last winter with my mum’s rising CEA . Two scans and still nothing showing them down it popped after six months with no...

Re: Fluid in Pelvis / PET,CT,Colonoscopy questions

My mum has had a few pockets of fluid from her surgery back in 2010 . They keep showing up . Just a post surgery complication for her . They did keep an eye on it but now just expect to see it .
She was on diuretics straight after her surgery but has had to remain on them .
Take care ,

Re: Freaking out of my mind...CEA climb and specks on lungs

Sounds a good plan . Is she on antibiotics? I honestly don’t know how long lung infections take to clear but it sounds a reasonable amount of time .
You sound more comfortable with that plan anyway .

Re: Freaking out of my mind...CEA climb and specks on lungs

I also have read that lung biopsies are not always popular as they can cause tumour tracking as they withdraw the needle. Although some do get them so you could discuss this with your mum’s team to see which side of the fence they sit on this .

Re: Freaking out of my mind...CEA climb and specks on lungs

Hi , Have a look at your thumbnail and it’s probably the size of the nodule so really it’s not that big . But I agree with you it’s big enough to have a PET scan . My mum had a PET scan on a lung nodule under 1 cm and it had uptake and was removed . They were concerned that the PET scan works better...

Re: Freaking out of my mind...CEA climb and specks on lungs

We have surfed a few of those anxiety inducing situations . You are both definitely going to get through this. Many people discover their lung nodules are infection / inflammation. It is not a case of waiting for confirmation and they may be gone at the next scan . The way I handled it was to permit...

Re: My CRC with liver mets journey

You are absolutely amazing . I think you are well entitled to a bit of a cry now and then . Maybe some more healing to get through but this has been one tough journey that you have endured . Take it easy , rest and sleep .

Re: HIPEC info

My mum has not had Heptic but has had 75% of her liver removed and her appetite was severely reduced for quite a while . Around three months there was a leap forward and fully recovered by six months but I don’t think you can underestimate what a hit it is for some people’s bodies . Small but often ...
