Re: Beansmama Checking in

Thank you everyone, Your support has moved me to tears - but good tears. I am seeing a therapist to make sense of the whole debacle. I have been for a little while now and I think that is one reason why I am doing much better with the whole thing. I did make a stipulation when I first found out tha...

Re: Surgery is over

So glad your surgery went well and you are up and moving already. I hope the loss of your ovaries wasn't too much of a shock and that you already had the family you intended to have (whether it included children or not). I sometimes wonder why surgeons make these decisions without at least discussin...

HI everyone, Sorry I have been so absent. Quite honestly my life has kind of gone to hell in a handbasket the last few months. Well except on the CRC front, that is about the only thing that has been going positively. It started mid February when I found out that my husband, who up until then I had ...

Re: Hair loss solutions?

I lost quite a bit on Folfox and folfiri so I shaved it and wore hats or bandanas. It all fell out on folfirinox. I have 2 wigs, I didn't wear them for a while but did start wearing them eventually. It was nice to go out without people staring, they didn't when I had a wig on.

Went to see the surgeon today

She wants 2 more treatments and another scan. I go back on the June 27th. She said Larry is getting smaller which is amazing, they are waiting for maximum response before they go in. If Larry gets small enough I may not have to have the Super duper surgery they are planning on, I may be able to have...

Re: New and in need of help please

Sorry to hear of your brothers diagnosis. I have a couple of questions - I too am stage IV with a nasty liver met that up until now had been inoperable. You said your brothers CRC was MSS? PDL-1 inhibitors such as Keytruda (which I am on and it is working for me) generally work better on MSI and MSI...

Latest news on Larry...

Hi everyone!! I know I haven't been on in a really long time, things have been crazy. Was hospitalized with cellulitis all over my abdomen, was pretty worrisome because it was mainly in all of my surgical scars. Did IV antibiotics and a round of oral antibiotics, it cleared up pretty easily. Thankfu...
