Re: mCRC STAGE IV OR RECURRENT PATIENTS thread - ONGOING

Sky, kpjpmom,
It seems like we are all in the same leaky boat. Just thinking about my old dog and tying lose ends together. This part of the journey is becoming a bit surreal, I am so glad that I have this thread to come to. Glad I have a community of friends who understand.

Re: mCRC STAGE IV OR RECURRENT PATIENTS thread - ONGOING

Just don't know what to say except Belle will be sorely missed. Belle was an inspiration to each and every one of us. Condolences and comfort to her family.

Hi all, first let me say I am older than most on this site and I am stage 4 with more chemo rounds than I can count. I have basically the same joint problems with spinal degeneration and my onc did admit it is chemo caused. I do strength training for seniors and Tai chi for arthritis. Tai chi has he...

The first scan to show anything after my first remission showed a cluster of Peri mets. Iwas put on folfox and avastin and they did not show up three months later. Never know for sure why it worked (was told it probably would not) but it did. This disease is very fickle, goes where it wants and it's...

Re: scan at MDA tomorrow... updated

Skypup, I know we don't always get the results that we want but at this stage of our game I think we pretty much get what we expect. Sorry your scan wasn't clear but mostly stable keeps you in the game. I am doing rso(rick Simpson oil) which is no picnic either but at least I feel like I am doing so...
