Re: Hope for lifers: Shrinkage on xeloda and avastin

Thanks for posting KT - more and more I am looking like a lifer - well for the moment. I have been on Xeloda and Avastin for 7 months and it has shrunk the tumor in my liver and the nodes (tiny ones in my lungs - too small to tell really). I feel very hopeless at times and it helps to know that ther...

Re: Just a lifer whining about being a lifer

Thank you so much for this post. I, too, am most probably a lifer. I am four days from the end of my treatment and am just now feeling better. Tuesday of next week it starts over again. It is very hard to explain these feelings to anyone who has never had this vicious disease - how much you want to ...

Re: New here, coming out finally

Welcome Tishanne. We have a similar story - diagnosed in November 2015 will a low rectal tumor. Referred to a colorectal surgeon - I was given the choice of a local excision or APR. My surgeon thought - after all the scans, pre-surgery radiation/chemo I could do either. Of course I chose the local e...

Again ... How Do We Go On?

Somewhere in my past posts I asked how do you go on? It was right after my oncologist told me that I was currently incurable! This would have been last September when - after my surgery, they found no lymph nodes that contained cancer cells and all was wonderful - but then then my oncologist did my ...

Re: Bad news yesterday

Dear, sweet Beans - don't you dare put down the gloves! You are such a hopeful gift given to all of us here. There are times I think we all feel like giving up - the uncertainty is excruciating. Is it only when we have a deadly disease that we realize that everyone has that uncertainty, healthy peop...

Re: To all, old and new

I read the board a lot but rarely post. Most of us, I would guess, live a life that, in the larger scheme of things, very few can relate to. Our days are not "normal". We have a cloud hanging over our heads very few understand. My thoughts daily run the gambit and end with the thought, I D...

Re: All feels so surreal (mixed emotions)

Yes, yes - a year in and this been the worst year of my life. I am still alive, my body has been altered in ways I can't believe.

I try to be positive and move forward. Not so much right now.

Peace for all of us is my wish.

Re: Struggling with terminal diagnosis

I was told last week that I am incurable - I could live two years, I could live 10 years - depending on my response to treatment. Somehow I now feel like my life is not my own (was it ever)? I am a Christian but am not in a good place right now. I cry a lot - I read this board continually. It is a g...
