She was treated in Seattle at Virginia Mason. Her oncologist's name is Dr. Picosi (or something like that). He is considered one of...

I am so very sorry you didn't get more time with your beloved wife. Your love for her shone through in all of your posts. Cancer is so unfair.

Re: Curcumin: What Brand and Where Do You Purchase

I use Curaphen by Euromedica. It has botswelia to increase the bioavailability. Got it on the advice of my ND.

Re: Sigmoidoscopy - will it hurt?

I've had several, and the worst one for me was the saline enema on my raw skin where my rectal tumor was. The scopes really aren't painful. The tool itself isn't too big. Good luck!

Re: My story, actually My wife's story

Thanks for sharing! Sounds like a hard situation, but definitely making the best of it. Sounds like if you have any kids they may warrant some genetic testing.

Re: Still Anemic

Hi Denise, I don't know if it's normal, but I am 7 months out from treatment and still anemic. Hysterectomy here, as well. The doctors don't seem too concerned.
