Re: Still NED!!!!

How have you been feeling lately, DE? Has the painful cramping etc. gotten better with your new meds? Hope so.

Re: Stage II but puzzle with the chemo.. : (

Think I gained some weight on xeloda also. I attribute that to all the macaroni and cheese that I ate. :roll: Sometimes you just need some good old comfort food. I could keep up with normal day to day activities until the last couple of weeks, when I was very tired. I did have my dosage lowered once.

Re: Stage II but puzzle with the chemo.. : (

That's a good point about friction on the foot. If that happened, you'd probably need to cut down on walking, or possibly get really cushy socks and comfy. shoes. I must admit that the last 1/3 of my treatment I had to cut back on the walking and finally eliminate it, but that was mostly due to fati...

Re: Newly Diagnosed - Broken

Hi brokenwings So sorry to hear about your diagnosis. There have been lots of new treatment options for colon cancer in the last couple of years. Immunotherapy, targeted therapy and cancer vaccines. There are even more soon to be available. There's hope. https://www.cancer.org/cancer/colon-rectal-ca...

Re: Stage II but puzzle with the chemo.. : (

I found exercising to be beneficial during treatment. Since I live close to a state park, I'd drive over and hike for 30-45 minutes about 5 times a week. It's a beautiful park, so it would elevate my mood, and the terrain wasn't to challenging. Good both mentally and physically. Best Regards, peanut

Re: Stage II but puzzle with the chemo.. : (

Hi esuperbaby, Welcome to Colon Talk. I'm a 5 year survivor of stage 2a rectal cancer. Like you, I also had suspected LVI. My oncologist initially recommended I go with FOLFOX for adjuvant treatment. My preference was Xeloda. For a couple reasons, one being that it's a pill, so you eliminate the nee...

Re: I need help deciding treatment after surgery!! THIS isn't Easy!!

Hi Charles, Welcome to Colon Talk. Just wanted to clarify something you mentioned about being 85% cancer free. At this point it sounds like you are NED (a really good thing), which indicated no evidence of disease. The 85% comes into play for your 5 year survival rate. Here's a link if you're intere...

Re: I had to give up driving my car....

Sorry to hear about your neuropathy, mob.

Here''s a link to an old thread where a topical cream was formulated which helped someone with pretty severe neuropathy.

Re: We Need Some Laughs Here: Reloaded 2018

A cowboy walks into a bar and takes a seat next to an attractive lady. He gives her a glance and then casually looks down at his watch. The woman notices and asks, "is your date running late?" "Nope." he replies. "I just got this state-of the-art watch, and I was just testin...

Congrats on the good scope, mob.

Probably about time for a post-colonoscopy drink.
