Re: Rectal case from Hong Kong

From what you have written it looks like your mum is either Stage III-C or Stage IV, depending on the status of the remote lymph node near the thigh. ⋅ If that lymph node turns out to be non/cancerous, then your mum's staging would probably be: T4b N1a M0 = Stage III-C, which is the highe...

Re: Rectal case from Hong Kong

Hi Mercy, I am in Hong Kong. I had a sigmoid tumour, so I did not have to have a colostomy. I understand your worries and concerns. Have you heard of the Hong Kong Cancer Fund? They offer many services for Cancer patients, survivors and families. They can often help with your question and connect y...

Re: Rectal case from Hong Kong

You are right. It properly take years for the new med coming from US to HK. For a grassroot family like mine in Hk which even do not have insurance, it is sure that there is no way for us to afford new drugs... I also find that most of the stage3 patients in this forum are using at least 2 kinds of ...

Re: Rectal case from Hong Kong

Plus mu mum took concentrated Agaricus officinalis juice from June till the day before. We are not sure if this is the reason of her raising CEA. Agaricus officinalis has been promoted for the function of easing side effects and killing cancer cells. That's why we go for it and it is actually not un...

Re: Rectal case from Hong Kong

I rely hope there are cures for cancer. Didn't know about IHC testing before joining this forum. Wish you all the best for your blood test Mike. Google also tells me it is possible for CEA to raise at first in chemo, then lower again. However, my mum's CEA only dropped from 9.0 to 7.3 after 2 months...

Re: Rectal case from Hong Kong

Thank you very much for your reply. We hv booked ct scan on Mon morning. Hopefully it is clean. It is not common for genetic test in hk unless one is in their final stage with no more suitable chemo. Instead, lots of people turn to Chinese medicine after chemo and radio coz it's not invasive. My mum...

Rectal case from Hong Kong (UPDATE: Lung Met, NRAS MUTATED, FOLFOX+Avastin)

Hello from Hong Kong. I am not sure if I should talk here coz most of the cases here are from the US, but this is the best colon cancer forum that I can find... It is my mum who got rectal cancer. She was discomfort in one Sunday's night back in April, then we took her to hospital for checking. The ...
