Re: Feeling stressed.

All over and all good. Thanks for the help and support. Good luck Susie! How did it go, I assume when you say all good, they didn't find any polyps? Hi. No polyps. All over very quickly. I was early and the one before me was late, so I took his place. Mild sedation and interesting to see my bowel o...

Re: Feeling stressed.

Two more sleeps. The tablets I took a while ago seem to be working! I'm now worried about a dull ache which has recently developed in my lower abdomen. Maybe the change of diet, I've been on low residue for a week now. Or maybe the different bile supply now my gallbladder is out. I'm sure I'll get ...

Re: Feeling stressed.

Thanks scared0304. It's this coming Tuesday, so a few more nervous days... Your polyp was pre cancerous and they removed it? So it's gone! I've read that they take about 10 years to become a problem. I'm the same as you, has something formed during the last three years? Highly unlikely they say. If...

Re: Feeling stressed..

Hi Susie. Yes, waiting is very stressful but it looks like you will be fine. I'll be thinking about you. Hope you're not toooo cold! Maggie Neil, I did take half a Lorazapam and seem to be less worried so far today. My attitude seems to be what will happen will happen. Maybe I'm resigned to the fact...

Re: Feeling stress

Thanks Maggie Neil. Good of you to reply. My colonoscopy is next Tuesday pm. I'm already watching what I eat. I will see my nurse next month, 11 months after the last appt. I do have some Lorazapam tablets to shut me up, but driving is not advised. They are two years old but should work if I had to ...

Re: Feeling stressed....

Yes, I'm a Google person and scare myself regularly. I've got my surveillance colonoscopy in a week and I'm already stressing about it. The one three years ago was clear and I'm told that it's unlikely to be different this time. Tumours don't grow that fast. I had a major scare and don't seem to hav...

Re: Stage IIA: Chemo or not?

All I can write is my experience. I wasn't offered chemo even though I had two risk factors, a blockage and underlying perforation well away from the tumour. I'm now four and a bit years post surgery with a good colonoscopy after one year, a clear CT scan after 18 months and consistently normal CEA ...

Great news! Encouraging for others as well. I'm 4 years and 15 days. Trying not to count but it's difficult.

Four years.

Just a quick post. Four years today since surgery. Feeling hopeful. No bad results so far from any surveillance procedures. Waiting for 4 year colonoscopy, due last month but probably now January. Oh well... Love to all.

Re: CEA and silly request but..........

CEA tests are scary obviously but I'm 99.999999% sure you'll be fine. I've never seen or read about a recurrence 5+ years after NED (or maybe 1 in about 20-30 million has had a recurrence) and I've skimmed through all 700+ pages of topics on this message board.
