Re: PVE response

Thank you Stu. I’m a bit younger than your mom at 60 but we share a similar story. I’m happy to hear of her successes. Has she noticed any differences in function with having so much liver removed? No doubt it’s all been replaced by now with regrowth but I wonder what it felt like initially. I’ll be...

PVE response

I’ve had a robust response to the Portal Vein Embolisation with no complications. All of my pre-op tests look great and I am scheduled for an extended resection on 6/12. I’m excited/nervous about this surgery. It’s a much bigger deal than my colon resection. I’m in pretty good shape except for this ...

Re: After Surgery Woes

I hope you’re feeling better. Recovering from a big abdominal surgery can be challenging. One thing I didn’t know prior to my surgery is that the bowels sort of go to sleep if they get moved around. This seemed to be true for me. It didn’t all wake up at the same time either so my gut felt weird and...

Re: 38 with, single with baby stage 4

Welcome to the club though I’m really sorry that you’re here. I too was “inoperable “ when I was first diagnosed stage IV in 8/16. I had mets to my liver, lungs, and adrenals. I responded well to chemo. I became operable when I had a partial obstruction and had been off of chemo for a while to trave...

Re: New Member saying Hello!

HI! I am a 55 year old male diagnosed with colon cancer in January 2018. I had a routine colonoscopy in January that found a small tumor (about 3.5 mm) in my colon. I had surgery on January 31 to remove the tumor, at which point 30 lymph nodes were taken, and cancer markers were found in one of the...

Re: Back to hospital for ascites

I am sorry and saddened to read this post. Any idea why she stopped her Avastin with her maintenance Xeloda treatments? I often wonder why I see this in many patient's profiles here and do not know why it is stopped when it worked so well in earlier years. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys....

I’ve been lurking and absorbing all of your stories while trying to comprehend the reality of it all. Thank you all for bringing your sto...
