Life style change

I was wondering if you all could share your life style changes after diagnose, surgery or treatment..
Diet, exercise, alcohol, anything that could help me after my surgery to get on the right path

My surgery is on Monday. So I’m preparing as much as I can. Very anxious.

Thanks,
KathyLynn

Re: Just told I have a mass in rectum

Looks like I will have a short round of Radiation then LAR Anyone had this treatment for Stage 1 or possible Early Stage 2? NO. MO. As far as I know. They said they will Stage after the surgery because of the close margin of Stage. Also. The tumor is a 2cm. Not a 5 cm as they had thought from the MR...

Re: Just told I have a mass in rectum

So, again, I’m confused. I will have a CT scan on Tuesday and a second opinion on Wednesday with an oncologist. They’re a few Doctors on the board that think I will be over treated if I have chemo/Rad before surgery. I know I have posted quite a few treatments that I thought I was having. Butt, seco...

Re: Just told I have a mass in rectum

So now they have decided to go with radiation/chemo first, then surgery. There is a very fine margin of T2 or T3
The location is 8 cm from the verge. Still N O. M O. Not sure on what surgery I will have. I’m sure I’ll know soon

Re: Just told I have a mass in rectum

It is far up, not sure of the exact location. But the doctors said it was in a good area of the rectum . I was told that I would need rad/chemo for 6 weeks. Then this morning, the tumor board said the doctors would rather remove the tumor first then have rad/chemo if needed. My head is spinning. The...

After seeing oncologist/radiologist, I was told today that they can remove the tumor without any treatment. Wow, now I'm excited. But, should I have a second opinion? I was gett...

Re: Just told I have a mass in rectum

Well, the PET scan came back good. The oncologist told me to cancel appointment with him and to go to radiation I'll know more Wednesday. But sounds like I'll have radiation to shrink tumor then surgery. No chemo? Has anyone done this treatment?

Re: Just told I have a mass in rectum

It is in the rectum. I was told that I would not need a bag because of the location. Thank you so much for all the information, I've been reading as I can. It's so much to take in. It's so hard. But reading the post here has really helped. Oncologist on Tuesday. PET on Thursday

Thanks
