Re: Kimberly Fund 2019

This may not apply, butt I nominate Beansmama's daughter. I don't have her info, butt I believe Writergirl does. Beansmama passed away last year (which is probably why her daughter may not be candidate), butt Beansmama's was a big present on this forum at one time. Is there not a better way to honor...

Re: Scanxiety is real!

What got me through, prior to a scan I would tell myself, no one know anything yet. Why stress over something that no one anything about. BUTT once I took that scan, I would let myself STRESS big time until I got the results.

Good luck, that fear is very real.

Re: Ladies what did you do with your hair during chemo?

Wow that looks pretty neat. That does look like a very wise investment.

When I was going through chemo, my hair got very frizzy, About 3 months following chemo, you could see when my hair was normal again. My hairdresser cut off all the frizz.

Re: Bowel Movement Frequency

I’ve always had a very clean diet but even with adding extra high fiber grains and veggies... I find that my body wants to do its own thing. Thoughts? Thank you! I'm wondering if the high fiber is causing the problem. Maybe try a low fiber diet for a couple of weeks and see it that helps. Spinach a...

Re: Adenoma Polyp at 20

I agree. When I was diagnosed, my brother got checked out, he was fine, not even 1 polyp. However his wife lied to a doctor said she was passing blood, got scoped, they removed a few polyps (she was 42-43). Was told to come back in about 10 years, she decided to only wait 3 years, they scoped her ag...

Re: "Dr" Google can be good

I've noticed a constant refrain here advising the newly diagnosed to stay off Google, claiming that the information is often out of date and wrong. . That is probably me. I've been here a few years now, and I see a pattern. I see newbies who are 100% convinced they have colon cancer, thanks to Dr. ...
