Re: Stage IV, 26 weeks pregnant, Merry Christmas!

So is it normal to feel just fine? I mean, I have a freaking 4.7cm mass of cancer in my liver and my daily routine hasn't changed. Nothing has changed. My kids don't treat me any different, lord knows they haven't taken on any more housework. :lol: My husband doesn't coddle me, everything is normal...

Re: I need help deciding treatment after surgery!! THIS isn't Easy!!

Hi CharlesT. I think it's great that you're doing research on your choices prior to making them. It looks as if you've already gotten some great information from the others, so I won't repeat any of that. What I will say is this - I also did a lot of research before making my decisions, and although...

Sounds right, Deep. I have same staging as you, and most charts have me as 3b (some still say 3a).

Re: Stage 3A Rectal Cancer Diagnosis

Hi Sinewaves. Sorry you have to be going through this, but glad you found this group. Like you, I was diagnosed stage 3. Mine was colon vs. rectal, so I had surgery first with adjuvent chemo for 6 months vs. radiation, but I did do Xeloda oral. I did a *lot* of research on Xeloda pill form vs. IV (5...

Re: Goodbye

As the one with cancer, I often felt that being the caregiver / loved one forced to watch would be *so* much harder. I'm so very sorry to read both posts, but so moved by the love and devotion that you gave to your partners.
Keeping you both in my prayers.

Hopefully you'll find some trials with promise, Orlar. I've always been amazed at all the hope and encouragement this site can provide when doctors are all out. Will keep you in thoughts and prayers.

Re: Tattoo during scope?

I see everyone has already provided you with great info. All I wanted to add was that my surgeon also did a sigmoidoscopy after my initial colonoscopy both to mark and recheck location. She said it was standard for surgeons to do this to ensure that the location noted during the colonoscopy was comp...
