Re: Advise needed re: chemo after surgery for rectal cancer

Hi Kim, My husband was also a stage 2. We traveled to MDA for a second opinion on treatment because we were getting different answers from out surgeon and oncologist where we live. We ended up doing folfox, but OXi was omitted on the last two treatments because of problems with his feet. He still ha...

Re: Sort of O/T My Pity Party- RSVP

Hi Bev, I just wanted to let you know that I was a donor for my sister who had a transplant for lymphoma 27 years ago and today she is a picture of good health. I also remember her getting massive doses of chemo before hand and also remember one day when her wbc was 0, not even 2! These transplants ...

Re: Anyone using non-toxic alternatives?

Hello again Vilca, The product that my husband took is called Max 3 by cell forte. The two main components in the medicine are IP-6 also known as Inositol/hexaphophate and Maitake Mushroom. A doctor named Abulkalam M. Shamsuddin has been doing research on Inositol since 1975. He wrote a book that ha...

Re: t4n0m0

I would get a second opinion about the radiation. Is it colon or rectal cancer your dealing with. Unless it's rectal cancer, radiation is not the norm and is not advised. My husband had colon cancer and his was also stage llt4. Our local oncologist told us that he would do 12 hits of folfox followed...

Re: Anyone using non-toxic alternatives?

Yes I had my husband use them, and he still takes low maintenance doses. He took these "natural" meds along with folfox. When folfox was completed, we continued for several months and then started cuttingt back and now use a low maintenance dose. I know he received benifits and stil does. ...

Re: t4n0m0

Hello, My husband had the same staging as your mother. He was stage llbt4. I have also read where the prognosis is worse than some stage lll's. I'm not sure if the prognosis is worse because not all stage ll's get treated or if it's harder to treat the cancer once it has possibly spread to the abd. ...

Re: and now I wait....

Hi Erika, Did they remove the polyp during the scope exam? If it is cancer, it sounds like it was a very early find, and I'm sure everything will be fine. I know the waiting game is the worst part, but try and stay positive. I have know people who have had a polyp much larger than 1cm and came back ...

Re: Just diagnosed pt3n0mx

Hello, When my husband was diagnosed, I did a lot of reading on all this stuff. I ended up giving him a product called Max 3 by cell forte. It contains these powerful mushrooms. If you were to treat this totally naturally, this is one of the main drugs that would by used by a "naturalist"....

Re: test results today T3 N2

Hello, I agree with what's being advised to you. When my husband had his surgery, we did not seek out a colorectal surgeon. All I could think of was that I wanted this thing out asap and took the first surgeon who could do it! Many mistakes were made, but thank God they were not too detrimental. Whe...

Re: When to have port removed

My husband wanted his out right away. He didn't want any reminders at all of this disease. Our oncologist had us wait for his 3 month scan. When it came back clear, thank God, we had it removed. My husband is also a pilot and travels all over the world, so keeping it in could of created problems for...

Re: Scan in mid April, getting 'down' already

Hello, My husband has a scan coming up soon. I literally get sick over these visits. The anxiety has already started building. The only good thing that comes out of this is I usually loose some much wanted weight. My sister is a 25 year cancer survivor who still gets a once a year scan and after all...
