Re: my heart is breaking

I'm praying for a miracle, that the radiation will work, that she will find a trial, or that something will make a difference. My heart goes out to you.

Re: My latest greatest

Belle, I don't have any words of wisdom, but I hope talking to some other doctors can expand the possible range of treatments. If these spots have been around for 2 years and haven't done much in that time, maybe you can still get them under control to the point that surgery or other treatments are ...

Re: Anyone doing the Gerson Therapy?

My husband's onc is a big proponent of exercise. My husband jogged prior to being diagnosed with CC. He now takes an hour long walk every other day and has been feeling good.

Re: Safety Not Guaranteed- The Movie

We saw that a few weeks ago and really liked it also. We rented it from Netflix. There's a movie coming out on DVD on 3/5 called The Intouchables (not the untouchables). We saw it in a theater several months ago and loved it. It's in French with English subtitles but was one of the best movies I saw...

Re: Folfox shopping list--any suggestions?

My husband never had problems with nausea but he had Zofran in with his chemo and had a supply of pills at home just in case. Stool softeners and Imodium were useful. He'd start out with 2 stool softeners the night before chemo and then 4 or 5 days later he sometimes needed the Imodium to slow thing...
