Re: Beansmama is gone.

Yes that is the best thing- that she did beat it most likely! Having a bit of post-holiday letdown on my end, even considering I feel like I'm in a relatively good situation all things considered. Thanks! That's what this group is all about. Understanding each other when we feel those down times, a...

Re: Resection Distance / Margins - what were yours?

I was just going through my records before my next meeting with the oncologist, and noticed the pathology report listed a distance of 18mm between the edge of the tumour and the closest margin (probably the distal margin since my tumour was sigmoid/rectosigmoid and I had a sigmoid colectomy). We al...

In April it will be 6 years since my liver resection. http://www.justalittletalk.com/2018/01/nine-years-ago-today/ You go, girl. You are such an ongoing inspiration to me, and one of the p...

Re: Beansmama is gone.

Hearing this news was enough to suck the oxygen right out of me. I know Karen, me too. Literally. BeansMama gave everything she had to overcoming her cancer. She held back nothing. I remember her last posting before Christmas, where she was hospitalized with pleurisy and substantial lung fluid that...

Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

This is an excerpt from her last text to me...

"Please, feel free to share my story - if it gives just one person hope that you can overcome what seems impossible it is worth it."

That's who she was.

Re: Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

I've been thinking of you since I heard the news. I'm so incredibly sorry for the loss of your dear friend. Even though we don't meet people face to face, we do have intensely personal connections with special people that we 'meet' online. A beautiful tribute to a phenomenal person. {{{ hugs}}} Tha...

Re: Beansmama is gone.

The liver resection was successful and she was cancer free when she went home from the hospital. From what I understand recovery seemed to be going well. She was fine a few weeks ago. It was blood clots in the liver that took her from us. She knew the surgery and recovery were risky, but we all thou...

Tribute to my dear friend Anne - aka BeansMama

I can't believe it's true, and I can hardly see to write this to you all. My heart is breaking. We've lost Anne. Our dear, sweet Beansmama. As most of you know, she fought a long battle with cancer, which ended in November when Larry was removed and found to be already dead. She was officially cance...

Re: Mom diagnosed last week - so scared

On the weekend of November 3, my mother started experiencing pain in her lower left side. She thought it was a muscle pull or a hernia. A week later (on the 11th), she developed a fever and my dad was able to convince her to go to the hospital. They diagnosed her with diverticulitis with a perforat...

Re: oxaliplatin side effects - 9 years after treatment

Nine years out from treatment with oxaliplatin, and my fatigue and neuropathy are getting worse. Have seen primary doctor, oncologist, neurologist - all looked for OTHER causes because they have no solution for side effects of chemo and don't want to admit that's the problem. Is ANYONE doing anythi...
