Re: Question regarding water absorbtion after rt hemi

My husband had 15 inches of his ascending colon removed along with his cecum, appendix and terminal ilium as well. He has had issues with loose stools ever since (6 years now post surgery). He takes Imodium daily and that keeps things very close normal. He drinks much more water than he use to befor...

Re: Cea question

For the first year and a half after surgery, we had a cea done every 3 months, but that was for stage II.

Re: Five years....and lung nodule

I think odds are greatly in your favor that its not cancer. Is your CEA a good marker for you? Has it been stable?

Will be praying and hoping for the best.

Re: Possible Mass on Liver

My husband has a cyst on his pancreas, and both kidneys and one in his liver that they followed for a little over five years. Our oncologist at MDA said not to worry about them. He said that many people have cysts all over and don't even know it. He said sometimes they will grow and cause problems, ...

Re: CURED!

Diane, God gave you a wonderful early Easter Present. Our oncologist told us those words last March when my husband made the 5 year mark being Ned. It is a wonderful feeling, but at the same time , when I read this board I feel guilty. Also like you, the fear in me never goes away. Every little ache...

Re: So confused - Stage 2b T4aN0M0

Yes Diane, I agree. You have to do you own research and trust your gut feelings. This local oncologist even went as far as telling us that the treatments he was advising was universal and was on the same page as MDA. He essentially lied to us and thought we would just take his word. After our first ...

Re: So confused - Stage 2b T4aN0M0

We were first seen by a local oncologist at the start of symptoms. After the diagnosis was made by the gastro doc we were referred to a surgeon and local oncologist. The surgery was done locally, but when we saw the local oncologist, we just had a feeling that what he was telling us was not correct....

Re: So confused - Stage 2b T4aN0M0

I have read that stage IIbt4a's have a higher risk of re-occurrence that stage IIIa t2 or t3. Most IIIa's are not a T4. Our oncologist said that A t4 , whether t4a or t4b means that there has been microscopic bowl wall perforation and cancer cells COULD of spread outside of the colon wall. He said t...

Re: So confused - Stage 2b T4aN0M0

My husband was a stage IIbt4a as well. We went to MDA and they HIGHLY recommended 12 rounds of folfox. He made it thru 10 with oxi, last few without. It wasn't easy, but did pretty well over all. He was also mod, differentiated , 24 nodes removed that were all neg and also positive for LVI. It was b...
