Re: Right hemicolectomy

Hi Claudia, I am also 47 years old and had a left hemicolectomy in May 2015. I would also say I was somewhat fit (are we ever where we want to be ??) Best advice I got was to have someone stay with you all the time in the hospital. BEST ADVICE!! My surgery was done laprascopically. They didn't do a ...

Re: Help me not get so sick please

Thanks so much for all the great replies. I was pre-treated with steroid, Aloxi and Emend. In reflection, my headache definitely contributed to my nausea. I just went and looked up Aloxi and Emend and see they both have the side effect of a headache. Oh joy, if it isn't one thing it is another. Thin...

Help me not get so sick please

Feeling like a giant baby when I have been reading how many people have lost count on what treatment number they are on or worse when others share how many years they have been treated with chemo. But also figure there is a lot of experience to share. I only had my first round and didn't go as plann...

Nausea and headache day 1 of chemo, advice

Went well at transfusion. Home by 12:30 and just blah. By 5:00, nausea and headache kicked in. Miserable despite 3 anti nausea meds given with infusion. Took the 2 additional home meds with some relief of nausea but headache is still here. Is this normal side effect?

Re: Diet changes-any health nuts out there (or healthy conscious)??

Have loved every reply. To those with changed taste buds, when did that happen in treatment? Whole Foods is the name of a grocery store that sells healthy and organic foods here in the U. S.

Re: Attention stage IIIs! Celecoxib and aspirin use during adjuvant chemo...

nbrandt, thank you for that reply. That is exactly the type of info I was looking for. Did you get a rationale as well that you should not start with aspirin therapy until after Folfox? Also, I just started another thread about healthy choices; I'll see if you commented there and if not I may PM you...

Diet changes-any health nuts out there (or healthy conscious)??

As a parent to 5 kids and wife to a husband who has an auto immune type of arthritis I have always wished I was more pro active in making healthier food choices for them and for me. My diagnosis might be the kick in the seat I have needed to start the ball rolling. We in general eat pretty healthy b...

Re: Attention stage IIIs! Celecoxib and aspirin use during adjuvant chemo...

So I asked about this at my chemo class Thursday and doc said aspirin can be used to prevent CC but shouldn't be used during treatment as it can possibly interfere with chemo. I hadn't printed the article assuming he would know the latest and greatest. Apparently not so much. Here lies the delicate ...
