Re: Thoughts on new plan

Hi , My mum never did post surgery chemo but she was significantly older . Despite not having had chemo since 2010 she has done not too badly . The only reason I am writing , apart from to wish her all the very best, if it becomes to much for her then I hope my mum's story will reassure her that it ...

Re: CT Scan said, "colon consistent with cancer"

Hi , Welcome to the forum . I am trying to get a handle on your story . Despite your reservation with Doctors you did feel comfortable enough to use that mechanism to assist with diagnosis? Maybe cautious with any form of treatment? I am married to a doctor but despite that feel if you are making an...

Re: new board member

Hi , Welcome to the board. I will leave others to discuss with you the best way to handle the oncologist as I am not from your area . However initially we felt as though the oncologist steam rolled over my mum with his approach . It seemed without compassion or advocacy on her behalf . With time tha...

Re: Fast growing cancer

My mum oddly has had both. Her liver tumours popped up quickly and grew quickly. One recurrence was immediate and sizeable . However it was the speed and rate of cell division that made them disappear just as quickly with chemo . Then quick removal with surgery before they could do any move harm . H...

Re: I need a little hope

Hi ,
Hope to encourage you . Just taking my mum on a cruise eight years after a stage 4 diagnosis. My signature tells the story . She is still living a good life and regular scans have helped stay ahead of the game.
Wishing you strength and very successful treatment.
Kind regards,

Re: Just got post-surgery results and they aren't good

You know if it was me I would close this down for a bit. Spend precious time with your husband and take each day as it comes. What's to be gained and you have a lot to get your head round with his diagnosis and other health problems. This seems to me to be circling and without benefit . I have found...

Re: Things people say or don't say but it's okay

Oh I have a wee confession . I am a daughter. I had trouble posting about six years ago so tried using my son's name . Stewart! He is 17 too. I am so touched your son has been so mature. My son has been great with his support when my mum is ill but he is also great at picking up on my needs too. I h...

Re: Things people say or don't say but it's okay

Hi Benben, I think your right about the path being difficult. It certainly helps your general health to be in good shape. I think we have all made numerous attempts to try and get some control on a situation that feels largely out of control . The more my mum has to endure the more I realise develop...

Re: Any survivor of 4th stage Metastasis Colorectal Cancer in Lungs of_My husband of age 28 years

Hi , My mum has had a reasonable amount of cancer . Over twelve mets to date, I think . I am losing track. A met popped up in her lung last year which the consultant insists was all part of the original spread just deciding to manifest itself. Chemo did a fantastic job and despite a very quick recur...
