Re: 80 year old mother

Thanks Michelle,

That's what I'm thinking, not to do the chemo. It was just one lymph node that showed cancer cells in it and it was removed.

80 year old mother

Hello, Here I am again, only this time with my 80 year old mother. She had her right colon removed last week and a 1.7cm tumor was removed. The pathology report shows one out of 27 nodes positive for cancer and the "T" rating is T1. Her cells were moderately differentiated. Nothing else si...

Re: CAT Scan Question

I can't give you the medical definition or explanation of what it is, but I can tell you that my husband had them show on his lung scans at MDA and our oncologist didn't go into detail, but told us it was nothing even worth mentioning. Nothing ever came of it and were over 8years out NED. I wouldn't...

Re: Mother just DX cancer

My husband was 50 years old, and he had all the genetic testing done at MDA and there were no abnormal shifts detected. Even with this, you still wonder if there is not a genetic factor that they don't know about yet, so it's not tested for. He had all this done about 7 years ago and our oncologist ...

Re: Mother just DX cancer

Thanks both of you. Were praying that it's nothing and that a simple resection can be done . With my dad being terminal with lung cancer we need mom to hang in there. They said her tumor in her colon was very aggressive. She gets scoped every year because she always has polyps. She had a polys in th...

Re: Dumb neuropathy "improvement" question

My husband also suffered from neuropathy in his hands, fingers and bottom of feet. He also had the Oxy cut from his folfox on the last two treatments because of it. It took about a full year, but it's completely resolved in his hands and fingers and it's now just very mild on the bottom of his feet,...

Welcome to the board. For what it's worth, my husband and I also traveled to MDA for his treatment and surveillance. We can't say enough good about the place. Your in good hands!

Re: Coffee...yes or no?

My husband loves coffee, but for some reason after his surgery he has been unable to drink it. It causes severe diarrhea! Even being over 8 years out, still happens. I guess it's Gods way of telling him hot to drink it. No problems at all with tea. Go figure.

Re: Full blood count

When my husband was DX with stage II several years ago, he was anemic when they did his blood work. Then a scope was done and there it was! Everybody is different as to whether things show in the blood work or not.
