Re: Eating plan: Keto OR Vegan OR Well-Balanced??

Hi Kelsi, congratulations on your Chemo Completion. Myself I started a Ketogenic diet about 2 months after treatment ended. It was very difficult to begin, the keto flu seemed more difficult to me post treatment. Energy, etc were not quite back to snuff. After a couple weeks things faired much bette...

Re: Lung Cryoablation

Yep, did a small resection on the liver and that went great. Probably one of the easiest surgeries I’ve had. Then on the follow up for that surgery they found a spot in my lungs had grown to 4mm. Still too tiny to do anything about so we waited 3 months and scanned again. This time it had grown to ...

Re: Lung Cryoablation

Hi Tdubz. Good to see you!

I can't provide any lung cryo info - sorry.
So I take it you got the liver situation sussed out? Last I recall you had what appeared to be recurrence near the gallbladder?

I hope everything goes well for you.

Re: Good news (and diarrhea) from scan

Hey all! Had my 2 year scan today. My appointment for results was suppose to be Thursday, so I knew the wait would be rough. However, they called me today! When I saw that number I about fell over- assuming the worst. But it was good news. Normal scans, normal CEA! Just thought I’d hop on here to s...

2 year scan

Hi all. Yesterday I had my 2 year CT-Scan. I had very heavy scanxiety given it'd been a year since the last scan. My CEA levels have been hovering 2.5-2.8. I've had some mild abdominal discomfort from time to time. Overall, my energy levels and overall health seemed pretty good. Long story short the...

Re: Made it almost 2 years, now it’s back. Any MD Anderson advice?

I haven’t been here in a while? Tdubz, I just wanted to say I'm sorry to hear about this. I was just recently wondering about you, as I recalled the elevated liver enzymes awhile ago. You know our diagnosis and treatments were just a week or two apart. I hope they can get the tumor out and that you...
