Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

Mostly I have the reputation.... :roll: Stu, there is a bottle of Glenfiddich on the counter. I have no idea if it is any good, it is the youngest mobster's drink of choice. He's all of 19 years old and has determined that single malt whiskey is the "bee's knee's". Deep fried turkey tastes...

Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

Last weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving. We tried deep fried turkey courtesy of my BIL.

Re: Calling ALL Colorectal CANUCKS !

Hi Peter, Although I can't directly answer your question I can tell you that I receive my care through the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre in Newmarket. There is an immunology department, although my treatment was standard chemo, with six to eight oncologists working in the centre. Mine is not an im...

Re: Progresions in liver mets :(((

I am so sorry to hear about you and your husband's situation. I wish I could be the one to help give you a better understanding of liver met treatments. Can I ask where you are located? Possibly someone here who has had to deal with liver mets and are in the same area as you could give suggestions f...

Re: I need a pep talk

I am so glad you are reaching out for support rather than keeping this inside you. If you are in the Toronto area I'd be happy to meet up somewhere for a coffee and chat. My treatments have been at a regional cancer centre north of the city and I have been very pleased so far. Is changing doctors an...

Steve I'm hoping that you're recovering well and that you'll be posting pics from Harry and Meagan's October tour of NZ for us!!!

Re: On going side effects of Right Hemicolectomy 4yrs post surgery

I'm the same as Beckster. Although the surgeon warned I would likely have looser stools, since chemo ended I haven't experienced that, and I don't remember it being an issue between surgery and the start of chemo either. I had roughly 30 cm removed starting at the terminal ileum. My diet is mostly f...

Re: Surgery Tomorrow - 27th New Zealand Time

Thanks for the update, we've missed your cheery voice here.
Wow 18+ days, I can only imagine how you must feel. And you have had such a tough go of it from the very beginning too.

Sending wishes that everything is on an upswing for you from now on.

Cheers,

I'm cleaning house...

Another step forward today. I am off to the pharmacy this afternoon to return my sharps bin and I won't be coming back home with an empty one!!! I'm also returning a box of unused Lovenox shots, plus some unused anti-nausea meds. By my estimation I've self-injected 225 blood thinner shots (at $25 pe...

Re: With apologies to the Bare Naked Ladies, but...

PET scan was on Thursday. I thought I would have to drink a contrast fluid like for the CT scan but was pleasantly surprised when all they did was inject me with radioactive isotope F18. Judging from where the bed started in the scanner they were looking at both femur bones and hips in addition to t...

All the best for your return home, you have had an 'eventful' journey so far. Out of curiousity which country is the godforsaken one, Aus...

Hey, I remember that song, just had no idea it was Kenny Rogers.
I'll be using those lyrics when I register with the nurse on Monday for the review of my PET scan results - " I just dropped in to see what condition my condition is in"
