10 years since diagnosed

It was 10 years ago today when I found out I had cancer after a colonoscopy. What a trip, don’t wish it on anyone. But, things have turned out ok. A combination of good medical care, self care and luck got me to today. Being on the board helped me out a lot, grateful. Best to all in the middle of it...

Re: Feeling good, Living Life even tho Stage 4

Great news, I think your keto diet is something a lot of us cancer people should explore. Makes sense to me.

Re: I stand up to use the word cure(d)....

Well said!! I use CURED as well, no reservations. There are some on this board that dwell in the negative and love pointing out people’s slightest errors in their posts. Judgmental types like that make it hard to come on the board sometimes. Keep posting, you were one of those who helped me get thro...

Re: The Liver Spots they missed

Looks like the treatment protocol was followed. 19 of 32 positive nodes is a lot, usually means cancer has spread beyond the original spot. Sometimes tumors are missed as they are too small or diffused and only become apparent with time. They can’t treat what they can’t see. I probably had a couple ...

Re: Zantac and Colon Cancer

Possibly as the drug has been recalled. You should search and see if there’s a class action suit brewing somewhere.

Re: Does CEA fluctuate in healthy individuals

CEA again. Yes, it can be all over the place in cancer and non-cancer people. In fact if you would look through a lot of the members on here, their CEAs are really low, like between 1 and 2 and still have pretty advanced cancers. A new, more exact method needs to be developed, I'm sure someone is wo...

Re: Folfiri and Nausea

Folfiri made me feel a lot worse than folfox. Had that sick feeling right away. But it’s an effective treatment, talk to your onc, I ended up having to take strong anti nausea meds all the time. Stay strong.

Re: CEA Confusion

Your CEA well within the normal range, some of us dream of a CEA of 1. On the other hand CEA may not be an accurate marker for you as it was way low when you were diagnosed. In that case I’d be more concerned with good scans than with good bloodwork.
