My new doc is a surgeon. He's really a sweet guy and is turning out to be a great neighbor. We all had a little neighborhood Halloween party last night and I had a chance to get to know him and his wife - very odd to be striking up a friendship with the guy who'll likely do my surgery. But we live i...

Welcome MissKim,
Is your cancer operable at all? Where are your mets? It sounds like you've been on long term chemo - what is your prognosis? So many questions.

Thanks all. Mssjv, I had to laugh reading some of your posts. It seems we've been down a very similar path. I, too, was told I'd die and had to find my own road. Your's sounds very promising. I have five mets with the largest being more than 7CM - thankfully they are all near the surface of my liver...

Wow, I'm so sorry to hear about your wife leaving you. But I can imagine how it could happen. Cancer is tough on a marriage. You raise a very good point and something that we should all be aware of. We all dream of hearing a diagnosis of NED... but there is so much healing to do after that... years ...

Great CD

I just checked out the Steps for Living site and the Songs of Hope CD. Can't wait to get the CD. Please check this out - these CDs would make great Christmas presents for your friends and family and it's an excellent chance to support a cause that is near and dear to all of us!

Mscheryl, sorry for your problems. I would echo the quality of life sentiment. I don't think that a few days or a week make a huge diffierence as long as it's just once in a while. As for the port discussion - scary stuff. I'm skinny. My port looks kind of like a third breast and it gets tender and ...

Congratulations

Wow, you must be one tough cookie. I've had two rounds and I'm feeling pretty sorry for myself. I don't think I could take twelve rounds. I read above that you are a stage III and very young. I SO hope that you can now put this behind you and go on to have a healthy and happy life!

New member / words of hope

Hi all. I just found this site by clicking on a link from the uoaa.org site. Check out the "2007 Colondar" if you haven't already seen it - it's great! I just saw a post from msjjvc (sorry if I got the name wrong). It sounds so much like my story. Unbelievable. I was dx with stage III rectal cancer ...
