Re: The things people say to cancer patients

I can really relate to that, a neighbour told me that her daughter wanted to go shopping to find a jacket and she told her she might not find the one she was looking for, and then the daughter replied «I know these things are not important, what really matters is that you mum are healthy and not lik...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I am happy to hear that things are improving! I also have the possibility to work from home when I don’t have classes, but I am not good at taking it.

Re: New on the forum

Just finished with the CAT scan, but I will get the answer in almost three weeks (12th of September). Well in Italy we say «no news, good news». Luckly I am not anxious yet.

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I started running after 5 weeks, mainly because of the pressure in the abdomen and surgery.

Re: Dang 1cm Liver Met!

I am sorry to hear that you got also updated to stage IV. But 1 cm is a small metastasis and it sounds like they already have a good plan to bring you back to NEDville.

A big hug

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

I am sorry to read that, I hope it can be operated and forgotten. It is really annoying to not be finished yet, but it doesn’t need to be a long delay to NEDville.

Re: Newly diagnosed rectum cancer

Sorry for the diagnosis, and welcome to the forum. I was diagnosed one year ago, 45 year old and two kids (7 and 10). One step at time and thinking about how I want my kids to remember me if these were to be my last months, one year has passed and I am cancer free, at least at macroscopic level. Goo...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

It took four weeks for me as well to close the wound and I did not have problems with control from the start, although frequency was higher than normal. Maybe not having adjuvant chemo made the healing easier. My tumor was 5 cm from anal verge. Now I am hiking in the Alps (Dolomiti) and have no prob...

Re: Hormone Replacement Therapy

You cannot just replace estrogen in women. You have to consider progesterone and testosterone as well. My ovaries and uterus were removed during LAR, so I don’t need progesterone. Some hormones are also produced by the fatty tissue and surrenal glands. I am curious about checking my hormon levels. ...

Re: VATS lung resection

Happy to hear about your speedy recovery! My VATS is due next week. Same size of the nodule...I didn't do a biopsy though... Did your doctor say you need or need not to do adjuvent chemo? I only did the neoadjuvant. For rectal cancer they don’t recommend it here in Norway if you had clear margins. ...
