Re: I will always be grateful I found Colon Talk

I will always be grateful I found Colon Talk

Chapter 32 of my 'kick'n ass cancer's ass" journal Over the course of writing this journal, I have mentioned a few times how valuable the Colon Talk forum has been to me personally during my journey. I stumbled across the forum by accident a couple months after I was diagnosed. I read every day...

Re: Positive fecal occult test

I had the fecal test and it came back normal. Within a year I was dx with a tennis ball sized tumour. Dr. said it had been growing for years and he could send 100 colon cancer patients for the fecal test and only 40% would have a positive. Fecal test only detects traces of blood in the stool. Not al...

My 2157 day journey ended today

It was two thousand one hundred and fifty-seven days ago when I was diagnosed with rectal cancer and my journey began. What a journey it would become, it wasn't easy. My life would now be forever changed. I had no idea what my future would hold let alone if I even had a future. Today, for the last t...

Re: O/T : I wish Brownbagger were here

From my journal Eric’s motto was simply “Live your life like it is going to be a long one, because it just might, and then you’ll be glad you did.” For whatever reason no other member captured my attention like Eric had. His motto had simply stuck in my head since I first read it back when I signed ...

Re: Laid off before Dx

As a Canadian I can’t complain about the level of care I’ve had here. Serious illnesses are prioritized. I’ve waited 11 months for a CT scan for something not urgent, I’ve also been squeezed in immediately numerous times over the past 6 months for many procedures. All without giant bills or premium...
