Re: Another new Forum Member.

Got Med-Port installed today early. Went pretty easy, got a bit of soreness/discomfort in the neck region but no pain at all at the port. Was prescribed from tylenol w/codeine. I opted to take one so that I could eat when I came home as swallowing kind of exacerbated the neck pain. It helped enough ...

Re: Another new Forum Member.

Sorry you had to join the Club, but you found a great source of information and experience. You sound as if you are a person who will have no trouble handling FOLFOX. I had several more lymph nodes involved, and I made it through all 12 cycles fairly well, except for the neuropathy and cold sensiti...

Re: Another new Forum Member.

I had a port installed (no big deal even though they call it a surgery) and finished my second round of FOLFOX this week. Surgery set for late summer. FOLFOX ef...

Re: Another Newbie

Hi Chuck, I'm Newbie as well. It's a tough pill to swallow that's for sure. The location of your tumor and size of tumor was very similar to my own. I had a 3.9 by 1.5 inch tumor that was mostly in the sigmoid colon, but also went down the rectum slightly. I had a second scope done by my surgeon who...

Hi all, First I want to say thank you for being here and sharing the experience of your journeys with everyone. I have been reading a lot of posts/info for the past month and decided to join the fight. I was formally diagnosed on 3/29 with CRC. I was told on 3/24 after waking from my first full colo...
