Re: New to forum--My story and concerns

Maurissa, welcome to the forum. As a caregiver and researcher for the past 1.5 years, I feel confident there is no better place online to get information and support. Off topic: Was your username inspired by the show Party Down? :) Thanks! And no, User name was inspired by a book series I was into ...

Re: Lower back + crampy pelvic pain -- a symptom of recurrence?

Hope you get it figured out. Mostly wanted to post to say what gorgeous kiddo in your profile pic. So cute! My last I was hoping would be a girl but I got a red headed boy.

Re: captain obvious

Only speaking from experience, but sometimes computer/phone should be confiscated for our own good. I took photos of my tumour pics while in recovery and sent it to many of my friends and family :oops: Many did not even know I was having a colonoscopy and were like what??? Lol, wow. And wait, there'...

Re: Colonoscopies...

As I've only had one, I have nothing helpful to offer. To be honest (even though I was worried they would find something-and they did) I kind of have a crush on my surgeon. He is mega hot. I was extremely worried about saying super inappropriate things to him under the influence of the crazy meds ad...

Re: How does red meat cause cancer?

I have nothing sciency of helpful really to add. But I must agree I love red meat and will very much like to enjoy it in moderation. Fingers crossed.

Re: Pain, pain and more pain

I used to travel a lot before Dx and blamed the dreadful airline chairs for frequent lower-back aches. Had no idea that these dull aches could be health related and didn't volunteer any news on this when going in for the colonoscopy. Had no idea what the doc meant when he asked if I experienced any...

Re: Busy two weeks for me

Will be thinking of you. Don't you love it when your kids feed you the same advice they've heard from yours truly!! :wink: Maybe you can ask for a designer belly button...ask for the Kristy Turlington model. Joking aside, you seem a wonderful example to your daughters. Sending love from Canada, Maur...

Re: New to forum--My story and concerns

Hi Maurissa, Well, it sounds like you caught this in time. Congratulations! I am sure they will do more tests when they remove the rest of the polyp, and if it comes back differently you will be able to have the appropriate followup treatment. Hopefully it is still benign. After my colonoscopy the ...

Re: New to forum--My story and concerns

... My burning questions are as follows: -how relieved should I be? That is a large polyp and the path report stated (in med terms) that is looked very much like cancer -how thorough is testing...do they swab each piece or? Are they ever wrong? -if the testing is in fact super thorough, what are th...

Re: New to forum--My story and concerns

Welcome to this forum! I'm new(ish) here too and it is a very friendly place :) I'm probably going to tell you what you don't want to hear - wait until you get all the results back before you make up your mind either way, that it's cancer or not cancer. Unfortunately they can make mistakes but it's...

Re: New to forum--My story and concerns

Well, I'd be relieved but apprehensive - you do have a big and probably life changing surgery ahead of you. How much of your rectum will you be able to keep? I'd think as far as gynaecological issues are concerned, its radiation and chemo that cause the problems there. I was rather sore after diagn...

Oh, and I did not have any menstrual or back issues do can't help you there. Okay, figured it can never hurt to ask...for now I'm going to chalk it up to stress and back situation to four pregnancies and carrying my beefy 17 month old around. :) Also forgot to thank you for genetic testing suggesti...
