Re: Repeat Colonoscopy, how often?

I am almost 5 years from DX. I have NEVER had one. I have had active cancer since the beginning so I get a lot of pet scans. I guess they must be able to see everything, many I should ask out of curiosity.

Re: One year anniversary

Don't worry about stats or what the docs pridect for your future. I have a very aggressive cancer and the doc gave me 6 to 9 months at the most. That was almost 5 years ago !! I have stopped treatments and I'm still on the right of the grass. Like the song says .... Don't worry, BE HAPPY !!

Re: The really hard part...

Cherie, I was diagnosed stage 4 and given 6 to 9 months at the most. That was almost 5 years ago! Like you, death was on my mind constantly at first. I was expecting to die at any time.

Re: Any differences Canada versus USA treatment for stage 4

Here in Alberta, Canada there is absolutely no cost to us for medical care. Almost everything is covered including drugs (cancer etc) MRI's, ct scans and Pet scans. I believe we have the best coverage out of all the provinces.
